Does anyone else have issues with the GNOME help viewer on CentOS 6? I think it mostly worked a while back, but after some recent update or the other, I have problems like:

1. Nothing happens when I click “Desktop User Guide” or “GNOME Desktop Accessibility Guide” or “GNOME Desktop System Administration Guide” on the “Help Topics” page.
2. If I select “section” links in the column on the left-hand side (under “Desktop”), I do get new section headings, but when I select any of these, again, nothing happens.
3. If I try to open a man page via a command like ‘yelp man:man’ or ‘xdg-open man:man’, I only get a blank window.

Any ideas about what may be wrong?
