Yes, but in that case FRAME is non-nil, so this new code isn't executed. It's executed only during startup.

I think it would be better to install this as a window-specific
display table, using set-window-display-table, as part of setting up
the window showing the*Help*  buffer.  WDYT?

Having it be window-specific, or better yet frame-specific, would be an improvement, but it shouldn't be limited to *Help* buffers, as other kinds of buffers can have curved quotes.

I'm not sure I'd worry about it. First, the kind of user likely to be running multidisplay is not the kind of user likely to be starting up in an obsolescent 8-bit locale. Second, if someone really does both things, they'll probably run into other problems anyway. Third, this particular problem, for the rare user who runs into it, will be just a minor glitch.
