The problem with the dictionary crashing in linux is with user-added notes. Try
opening the dictionary entry to "repeat". I filed a bug report on this a while
back and it has yet to be addressed. Yes, this shouldn't deter anyone from using
LiveCode on linux, just don't use the dictionary. It's a bit annoying when the
IDE crashes and takes your unsaved work with it.
