Actually it is not 100% fixed. I am reopening it.

I think i found the bug scenario.

Open a text file and a Perl 5 script.
Select the text file tab and press F2. You will get a message box telling you "Help Provider not found".
Now select the Perl 5 script and press F2, you will get "Reading items. Please wait" but not actually nothing is being done.

... or even easier:

Open padre with no documents. Press F2.

It will hang

...could you be more precise (OS, version) ?
Because it seems to work well on several configurations.

WinXP, vista.

Linux, OpenSuse? 11.2

It's trawling the filesystem - not hung as such but the gui freezes. Leave it for a few minutes and see what happens. Subsequently opening helpsearch with F2 responds ... quicker.

Still, an action that hangs the program and prevents the user from using Padre for a couple of minutes should be considered broken.
