Bug#398590: eclipse: Modal dialogs prevent scrolling in Help,
which makes tutorials almost unusable.

Eclipse includes various tutorials with step-by-step instructions
for various tasks. Sadly the various modal dialogs required for
the tasks (create project, import archive, ...) prevent scrolling
of the help viewer (although they don't prevent changing focus
to it to view it), which makes the tutorials very difficult to
The presence of screenshots in the tutorials makes the "get an
entire set of steps into view before starting to follow them"
unworkable because, typically, it really is neccessary to scroll
to work through an entire list of steps.
Browsing them with some other browser (e.g. Firefox) is a
non-starter appears to be a non-starter as the help info isn't
packaged in raw HTML files.
