After "Start without debugging" has completed, accessing help from IDE fails. The help appears, but it's right-hand pane is blank. I tested with a simple batch file which said only "ECHO foo".

It never fails (to misbehave) here.

Anyone else?

My batch file is one line that says "echo foo". I typed ide test.bat and
pressed Ctrl-F5. After noticing the "foo" emitted, I pressed F1 and help
came up and behaved as expected.

To see what I see you must first run it with "Debug\Start without debugging".

That's what Ctrl-F5 does.
