I can deactivate the internal help browser in GIMP, it currently has
stability issues anyway. Then it should use the external default browser
for displaying help (I don't know if we ship gimp-help in the live media
at all). Alternatively, I can split off the internal help browser so we
can leave that out on live media -- it should be installed on normal
installations though because (once it's not crashing) it's much faster
at startup than say firefox.
