Could you please give a full example what does not work? Does the
keybinding not work or is it just C-h k?

In the first case that's serious bug and we need a more detailed bug
description (e.g., on my machine C-M-x works very well). In the second
case this is a well known bug [1] and a fix is underway (available in
the fix-esc branch).
