I can reproduce this. The reason of error is simple: help buffers for key combinations where not considered when writing help: link type. Current code does not even store the link to such help buffers correctly - when the key sequence has more than a single key only the first key will be stored (tested in <f1> k <f1> k help buffer). The code to open help: link type also does not know that help: link can point to anything other than function or variable. I can see two solutions: 1. Avoid storing links to help buffers describing key sequences. Show error when trying to store such link instead 2. Write proper handlers for storing and following links to help buffers other than just function/variable help (in addition to key sequence help buffers, org-store/follow-link also fails to work with describe-face buffers at least) To do this, one need to change org-link--open-help and org-store-link (see "(eq major-mode 'help-mode)" line). Patches are welcome. P.S. Would it be cleaner to have separate :store link properties for standard link types instead of hard-coding them into org-store-link?
