bug#8947: 24.0.50; `describe-mode': `help-mode-map' pollutes minor mode descriptions
Mon, 27 Jun 2011 15:41:59 -0700
This bug seems to date from the first day that `describe-mode' included
Visit any *.el file, hit `C-h m', then search for `Transient' in *Help*.
The help for `transient-mark-mode' says this:
"...for example, incremental search, <, and >."
`<' and `>' here should be `M-<' and `M->'. The bug happens because
`help-mode-map' is being used to interpret `\\[beginning-of-buffer]'
and `\\[end-of-buffer]'. In the *Help* buffer, where the text is
used, the current keymap is being picked up, where these commands
are bound to `<' and `>'.
Note that the problem isn't manifested for something like `C-h f
transient-mark-mode'. In that case the bindings picked up are those of
the current buffer where the command is issued. If you do that in
*Help* then you get `<' and `>'. If you do it in *.el then you get
`M-<' and `M->'.
