counsel-describe-foo functions do not respect help-window-select variable #639

help-window-select controls whether Help-mode buffers are auto selected or not. If you set this to t, help buffers spawned by C-h v C-h f etc. should be selected, to quit with q. But the counsel equivalents, counsel-descbinds, counsel-decribe-function, etc., do not follow this selection behavior. It appears to be a recent regression, about a week ago these were working for me.

Thanks, this is indeed due to a recent change. I'm trying to phase out the need for using with-ivy-window in the action functions. This can cause a few regressions, but I think it's worth it in the end.

Thanks for the quick fix and context.
