I ran :helptags, checked file format and permissions, and I cannot figure this one out. Checked :help write-local-help, :help add-local-help, and didn't see anything "helpful".

Apart from the usual "check that your plugins isn't interfering" 
answer all I can think is that something has changed in Vim (the
version that ships with MacVim is much more recent than the one that
ships with OS X).
Can you reproduce the problem if you use the "Vim" binary that ships
with MacVim without the GUI? To start it either type "mvim -v" or (if
you don't have the mvim script)
If this version doesn't work, then the problem is with core Vim in
which case I would ask that you please report to the vim_dev Google
