I can't reproduce this on 10.4.11 ppc with devhelp @0.22_0.  Works fine 
for me with both from glade-3 and the command line.

However, I'm looking further to see where this message is coming from.

In addition, am working on updating to 0.23 although there are some 
build problems with latest webkit-gtk.

Suggest you open ticket on trac about this.
