      I confirm that :help! gives "E478 Don't panic!" but only when used with
      a bang but no argument. I tested it in a help file, in a plain
      (non-help) *.txt file, in an HTML file and in my ~/.vimrc, and I get it
      in all four: IOW for me it isn't limited to when viewing help files.

      Using gvim 7.3.487 (Huge) with GTK2/Gnome2 GUI (and, among others,
      +multi_byte +multi_lang).

      FWIW, my :lang is set to en_US.UTF-8 but :lang mess to C, $LC_PAPER and
      $LC_TIME to en_GB, as follows:

      Current language:
      "LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8;LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8;LC_TIME=en_GB;LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8;LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8;LC_MESSAGES=C;LC_PAPER=en_GB;LC_NAME=en_US.UTF-8;LC_ADDRESS=en_US.UTF-8;LC_TELEPHONE=en_US.UTF-8;LC_MEASUREMENT=en_US.UTF-8;LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_US.UTF-8"


      Best regards,
      Tony.
