Type "help" and you'll see that after spitting out a bunch of useful information it says: 
   For server side help, type 'help all'
Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be an 'all' entry in help_topic or help_category.  There are three keyword references for "GRANT", "SELECT" or "UNION", which isn't what you'd expect to get from the above message.

How to repeat:
(1) at the mysql prompt, type "help"
(2) read the instructions and type "help all"

Suggested fix:
Either remove the "help all" reference in the general "help" text, or add a specific entry for it.
