I haven't added any code yet to detect if StrongHelp is already running
and to try and launch it if it's not.

Ah yes, there is placeholder code that reacts to the EdgeNotification
message that is in the ROL branch but not in the ROOL branch. I still
need to make a decision on this; use the message or do edge detection in
ToggleBD itself.

Using the message is easier but limits on which OSs it can be used. I do
have an implementation of EdgeNotification for RISC OS 5 though, maybe I
should just submit that.

I still don't understand why that is, here using 5.19 it works fine both
on the Iyonix and RPCEmu.

Open a window when the backdrop is raised then you'll see the difference
when you keypress/icon click again.
