retitle 39682 26.3; Help window for list-packages disabled when dired+ is
Give it any title you like, of course.

But I think this title may be misleading.
IIUC, the problem arises also without Dired+
- with el-get.el instead, for example.

As far as I understood that thread, it was el-get in addition to
dired+.  This bug report doesn't mention el-get though.  And so far I
haven't been able to reproduce problem anyway.

Tim, could you post what M-: (tabulated-list-get-id) RET gives when this
problem happens?  (That seems to be important part of
package-menu-describe-package, which is what '?' calls.)

Sorry about that Drew. The conclusions from the thread were as you describe them. While following code from el-get I found that the error manifested at the point of a sexp that loaded packages with additional arguments. I.E. in

el-get-elpa.elĀ  -> (require 'package nil t) or something like that.

I'm operating with a bare minimum of elisp knowledge AND I've been retired for 5 years. ... :)

Here is *Messages* and tabulated-list-get-id
