Manipulate in HelpBrowser: Bug

I wanted to use the Manipulate command in some of my old help files,
i.e. HelpBrowser and not DocumentationCenter.
Thereby I noticed the following weird behavior:

Open the HB with

Manipulate[Plot[Sin[k x], {x, 0, 1}], {k, 1, 2}].

It won't behave properly when moving the slider. Now strange is that
1.) Animate works
2.) Copying the output cell and pasting it again works.

I used M6 in Windows, on Mac and Linux everything worked as expected.

Can anyone explain this behavior or (even better) knows a (simple)
workaround. My best idea would be to use Animate instead.

Thanks in advance
