Thanks for posting this.
I can't quite reproduce the same failure here... In my testing, the page-break function works fine, but the "new" Shell sometimes crashes on exit. I haven't yet figured out if that's a bug in the new Shell or a bug in our firmware... We've put plenty of effort into testing the builtin "old" Shell (built from the now-extinct GccShellPkg directory in EDK2), but not so much for the new Shell – which we don't yet include in our products – I'm afraid.
How are you launching the Shell? e.g. Are you setting up a boot medium (CD/Floppy/HDD/other?) with the Shell.efi as \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI, or are you launching the "new" Shell.efi from within the builtin "old" shell?
Are you running any other commands before "help -b" triggers the crash?
Anything else you can think of which might be relevant to reproducing the problem? It might be helpful if you could attach a vmware.log obtained from the VM bundle right after the failure occurs.
