Ok, so I managed to get rid of the problem.  For me the issue was caused by one of the company-frontends (probably interacting with some other component of my setup).  I used to have these:

(setq company-frontends

I replaced them for this:

(setq company-frontends '(company-pseudo-tooltip-frontend

And now things are working fine.  The help file only gets open if I press F1 (and not automatically after a few seconds).

Of course, I do not undertand *why* things got fixed.  But I can live with that. :)
