Hi Rodney,

I couldn't reproduce help.start() problem (at least on Ubuntu).

Spinner is not supposed to interfere with evaluation. All what I do is
to set up a  timer which checks the state of the process every .5 sec.
If you have any issues with evaluation it is probably something else.

Thanks for the feedback.
