Сreate a trigger:

text="call bis_fnc_help";
expActiv="call bis_fnc_help";

And try this radio-command in the mission, the help window will appear only at the second attempt.
Source of the problem is in the file "\modules\Functions\init.sqf" (line ~72):
call compile format [" 
    if (isnil '%2_fnc_%3' || %4) then {
        %2_fnc_%3 = {
            if (!%4) then {debuglog ('Log: [Functions] %2_fnc_%3 loaded (%1)')};
            %2_fnc_%3 = compile preprocessFileLineNumbers '%1';
            _this call %2_fnc_%3; // <-- We need check _this on nil value before use
        %2_fnc_%3_path = '%1';

This is not a problem with the BIS_fnc_help function.

Dialogs cannot be displayed while the game fades in from the loading screen.
