I'm glad you seem to have solved the problem.

But I don't understand how you got help-fns+.el[c] loaded if you started Emacs 
using `emacs -q', which doesn't load your init file.

The original problem really needs to have been narrowed down to only the 
library (or libraries) really necessary to repro the problem.

To be clear, what happens if you ensure that you load _only_ el-get.el, and not 
help-fns+.el or dired+.el or anything else?  E.g., use just `M-x load-file' for 
elget.el (or elget.elc).

That'll probably keep you healthy.  Good shoveling.
