(Sorry for the very-late response!)

As you suggested, I (again) do:

C-h k   on  Meta(ie esc)-g(as in grep)

    and I still get that set-face thing in that one-line window-thingie
    down at the very bottom of the screen  

    , and that's before I even get a chance to enter that *second*
    g (In M-g g).

What do *you* get when you try it?


And I do your suggested C-x o (which of course I use
all the time) while sitting there at the end of
that set-face line (*in* that bottom-of-screen one-line window),
and the only effect is to erase that set-face line.

I'm using 21.3.2.

But I'm not in the help buffer!  I'm in that little ephemeral bottom-of-screen,
what, "mini window"?
