The links are between static text inside the dialog boxes and other boxes. I
think it may have something to do with the tab order of how fields within the
dialog box are ordered, because the What's This? manual mentions something
about setting a topic ID to -1 to avoid what sounds suspiciously like this
problem. And linking seems to be a C/C++ convention.

There's a WinHelp list? :) Thanks. Our developers are smart and not totally
inaccessible, so I'm not too worried.
