[Rd] Bug with message if there is no documentation; R2.8alpha Win32 (PR#13131)

From: <mwtoews_at_sfu.ca>
Date: Mon, 06 Oct 2008 16:40:03 +0200 (CEST)

In the latest R 2.8 alpha for Win32, if either of the commands are typed:
> help("erfc")

.. or ..
> ?erfc

the result is:
No documentation for 'erfc' in specified packages and libraries: you could try '??erfc'

This should be: 'help.search("erfc")', as shown in R 2.7.2 Apologies if this has already been submitted/fixed. -Mike
