bug#17210: 24.3.50; help mode [back] link to a C-h b keybind listing fai


From: Ian Kelling
Subject: bug#17210: 24.3.50; help mode [back] link to a C-h b keybind listing fails with message "Current buffer is not in Help mode"
Date: Sun, 06 Apr 2014 16:47:36 -0700
User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20131103 Icedove/17.0.10

Repro steps:
emacs -Q
C-h b
click function name link
click back

expected:
go back to the C-h b keymap listing

acutal
in echo area: "Current buffer is not in Help mode"
the help buffer does no change.


The problem does not always happen, but it seems consistent on the first try in 
a
fresh emacs. Toggling debug on error, gives this trace:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Current buffer is not in Help mode")
  signal(error ("Current buffer is not in Help mode"))
