evil gnome-help-browser

I recently upgraded my system to Redhat 7.2 and discovered something
truly horrible about the new help browser.  When run as a normal
user, it behaves normally.  When run as root, it pops up some
browser called nautilus and then STARTS A NEW WINDOW MANAGER!

Try it yourself:

	1) run your usual X environment (I use fvwm)
	2) in a command window (e.g. xterm), type "su"
	3) as root in this new window, type "balsa &"
	   (or any other gnome application you want)
	4) select any item from the help window.

There will be a pause and then a new desktop will start up on
top of the one you were running.
