initial-setup's help screen

Description of problem:
On Fedora 24 Alpha 1.6, it's impossible to close (or move away) the window containing the help screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a Fedora 24 Spin (not Gnome), without creating an user account.
2.When rebooting, wait until initial-setup starts.
3.Click the "help" button.

Actual results:
1. It's impossible to change focus to initial-setup's main window. It's then impossible to input the required datas.
2. The help facility runs, but can't be closed.

Expected results:
1/2. Users should be able to switch to the main window nor close the help screen.

Additional info:
1 - This might be related to
2 - Screenshot attached

Comment 1 Giulio 'juliuxpigface' 2016-03-20 18:58:10 UTC
Similarly to, I'm proposing this as FE for Alpha and as Blocker for Final. I've hit this with Fedora KDE and it makes the utility quite unusable.

Criterion: 2.4.1 Expected installed system boot behavior (Fedora 24 Alpha).

"On the first boot after installation, a utility for creating user accounts and other configuration may (may, not must) run prior to a log in screen appearing."

Discussed at today's blocker review meeting [1]. Voted as AcceptedFreezeException (Alpha) - this is obviously a serious issue that can't be fixed with an update. If it can be fixed without touching anaconda, we will likely take the fix. However, if the fix requires change to anaconda (the bug is the same as #1319590) we won't

Turns out this had the same cause as bug 1160891 - window manager not running.
