Broken Help Menu Breaks Rather Unpredictably

Last week, I wrote about the Help menu bug that seems to "freeze" apps inasmuch as it makes them not handle any keyboard input.

The thing is, I cannot always reproduce this issue. I rebooted my system and just couldn't break the behavior anymore. Which sounds an awful lot like running the system for a while and using it in a specific way might affect the Help menu's behavior. But I don't know which steps you need to take to reproduce this. It's puzzling me. With Daniel Jalkut and a beta tester of my latest app having experienced the same issue, I know I'm not alone. Or crazy. Just clueless.
