I know this has been reported before but I haven't looked into it yet. I'm wondering how to handle Formulator upgrades though -- just checking if you've been registered in a previous startup is not enough if the help text changes between releases, is it?

It's been a long time since I worked with the Zope help system..

I attach my previous patch. It may no longer work, though.

It doesn't apply cleanly to Formulator 1.6.2 (the one that
ships with plone 2.0-final). But it's easy to apply the rejects
by hand.  Updated patch attached, can you verify that this
does what your patch intended?

I applied this, but it doesn't solve the ReadOnlyError :-(

I'm not sure whether the patch ever could've worked. Firstly, the rich comparison operations were never called; I think perhaps due to some limitation in ExtenionClass. __cmp__ is called, but instead I just made the method explicit. Possibly this is better in Zope 2.7; I'm still testing with 2.6.4.

Then there's another problem; I think FieldHelpTopic is basically compared before Formulator (or the help system?) is fully initialized, so no groups or fields are found to compare (causing it to always succeed).

I'll try to revise the strategy to fix this problem..
