That item has been removed in a later version. We want people to use help from
nautilus, instead of the old broken gnome-help browser.

Unfortunately we forgot to add the nautilus help browser item to the "programs"
menu, but we're already frozen, so it's too late.

Oops. Just tested in Nautilus, and it exhibits this behaviour.
