Yes.  It started !Help, which I didn't want to see because !Float was
already active.  I just tried that again and the same thing happened.

How does NS decide if a help utility is active?

Yes I realise it's not a good solution, but all you'd actually need is
to allow users to drag the utility concerned to a NS config window and
NS could check the app existed on the path concerned and generate a
suitable error message if not.

Jeremy C B Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
