IMO it the description of helpText() which is wrong. Ever since the BE 
redesign of 4.4 (IIRC) the help text is always displayed as a question 
mark icon and not fully inline anymore. It can also no longer be turned 
off. Which is why the corresponding user option was deprecated.

So the helpText() description can probably be changed to simply "Returns 
CSH help text".
