I see that with "LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC1 - WIN XP English UI [OOO330m17 (build 18.104.22.168)]": Clicking a HELP button always lead to HELP start page, not to the specific Help contents.
Steps to reproduce:
1. open new CALC document
2. Click Function Wizard symbol 'F(x)' t insert a function
Function wizard dialog appears
3. Select function "AVERAGE"
Short summary concerning "AVERAGE" appears in the dialog
4. Press <Help> button in dialog
expected: Help concerning function "AVERAGE" should appear
actual: CALC Help start page appears
I believe that's not new for you, but I did not find this on
For a stable release that would be no "modern" solution, I see that as a blocker for the final releas.
Wikihelp or UI problem? I can't tell.
Rainer: Thank you for the report, this is not a known issue :-( Looking into it.
Got the reason, now how to fix it best ;-)
BOOL SfxHelp::Start( ULONG nHelpId, const Window* pWindow )
in sfx2/source/appl/sfxhelp.cxx, the while() loop starting at line 881. This fallbacks to the start page when the help is not installed.

Fix for the problem
This should fix that; sent to the ML for review.
Fixed in the libreoffice-3-3 branch, as commit 55abe868d44218c0af7e55fb83a11d07ecb01894 in libs-core.
