Problem was that the help prefix for units with variations needs to now be ".." because it is a 'folder' with all the variations listed underneath it.

Also note that descritptions for variants that a player has not discovered in game can also be accessed through the descritptions of the variants that the player has already discovered.

The unit descriptions for a Walking Corpse & Soulless base units always show as 'Unknown Unit'.

This is true even if you play a simple multiplayer game as Undead with Age of Heroes era and recruit these units.

Even setting 'Show all unit types in help' in Preferences->Advanced does not effect it.

This is only the base units, if you produce a variant of WC or Soulless, (ie, a swimmer) it's description will be accessible. Oddly, WC & Soulless base descriptions can be accessed through one of their variant's descriptions.

This occurs and was tested on 1.11/12 branch and master under a cleared cache & freshly created preference file.
