Thanks for noting this. 
The culprit is my commit d21d42b69117aae04b68ecc9cc2139e034bde146, in which I 
make the UserManual a child-object of MainWindow.

You can fix this for now by removing this in line 1358 of mainwindow.cpp:
  helpView = new UserManual();

Before posting a patch, I'd like to figure out the root-cause of the problem. 
Because this is utterly strange...
