Yes, if helped opened it.

But not if help was just displayed in that window. Then I expect q to
remove help and show what was there before.

I simply expect q to restore the state if it is possible.

However on thing that has disturbed me is that for example window
configurations are restored after I have made changes to the temporary
window configuration. That does not seem useful (except in the case of
debugging which is very different).
