Re: balloon help for search-window-dialog

You need to make sure that the logical pathname host "CCL" is defined
properly.  It needs to point to the directory with the MCL help file in
it.  On start up, MCL sets CCL to point to the directory containing the
application and HOME to point to the directory containing the document
that was double-clicked.  If the application is started directly (ie, no
document was double-clicked, then HOME and CCL point to the same place).

If you store you application elsewhere, you should have it load an init
file which redefines the logical host CCL to point to the MCL folder.
To get an idea of what you need to do, evaluate 

	(logical-pathname-translations "CCL")

and use that as the base to modify.  OK, it's an ugly solution, but it
