When I run emacs with init.el and then invoke list-packages, the help window does not show for a package, regardless of mouse click or using keystroke "?"

This is not a problem when I start emacs with -q.

I'm loading a lot of stuff in init.el, so I would welcome any ideas as to what I have 'require'd or configured.

This issue was submitted as a bug. Subsequently the package maintainers and the individual associated by the bug report were initially unable to reproduce the error message of "No Package Specifiied"

I received instructions on how to debug the the request. I found that the command describe-package was failing because the original defun of that name was overriden by the the fn-help+ package that was a dependency of the dired+ package. If you were to invoke list-packages and run describe-package against you will see that it is recommended that the package source be recompiled whenever a new version of emacs is installed.

Kudos to Drew and Noam...
