I must be caught up in a weird parallel Newtonian universe... either
that or we're running different versions of the NTK.

The documentation is still correct - you need to delete the DoInfoHelp
and DoInfoPrefs slots (if they exist in your browser). In my version of
NTK I select a slot and press command-X to delete it... Alternatively,
in your afterScript:
    RemoveSlot(thisView, 'DoInfoHelp);
    RemoveSlot(thisView, 'DoInfoPrefs);
should do the trick.
