httpd error with and help_type = 'html', package = NULL

Michael Nelson
Having loaded a package that masks an object from another package, calling


help(conflictedname, help_type = 'html')


instead of producing a page giving the choices of help page available

The page produced is

Error in httpd("/library/NULL/help/nobs", NULL, NULL, c(48, 6f, 73, 74,  :
  replacement has length zero


This example is reproduced using

library(gdata)
help(nobs, help_type = 'html')



sessionInfo()
R version 3.0.0 (2013-04-03)
Platform: i386-w64-mingw32/i386 (32-bit)

locale:
[1] LC_COLLATE=English_Australia.1252  LC_CTYPE=English_Australia.1252    LC_MONETARY=English_Australia.1252 LC_NUMERIC=C                       LC_TIME=English_Australia.1252    

attached base packages:
[1] stats     graphics  grDevices utils     datasets  methods   base    

other attached packages:
[1] gdata_2.12.0.2

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
[1] gtools_2.7.1 tools_3.0.0


There are no issues when using help_type = 'pdf' or help_type = 'text'

Is this not PR#15282?  No one has got to it yet.

Fixed now in R-devel; just testing R-patched.
