If you have a tall terminal, such as an xterm of 45 lines, use 'more' to
view a file, and request help ('h'), then the help file will not remain
displayed. This occurs if the terminal is bigger than the help file.

See Description.
Sloppy workaround (not very satisfying): add junk lines to the help file.

On a terminal bigger than more's help file, you don't get time to read it.
