Scrollkeeper merges content lists of various locales
when offering a final content list to the help browser.
Usually the current locale and C are merged. The
purpose of this is to offer English versions of
untranslated documents to the user. The final content
list will be in a temporary file in /tmp. The file is
created in cl/src/get-cl.c. According to the algorithm
5 temp files are used, if there is any not created yet,
that will be used for the next merged content list, if
all of them exist then the oldest one will be used.
This algorithm fails if more than one users use the
machine as they are not able to overwrite each others
