I see all the above dictionary symptoms. Note, though, that I only saw 
the problem with the duplicated API and Guide tabs once. And on second 
click of the Dictionary the contents do appear after a delay.

In addition, if you have Toolbar text enabled and Toolbar icons 
disabled, the "Dictionary" text becomes overwritten with <something> 
after clicking it.

I cannot replicate the empty stack problems, though.

The good news: I no longer am seeing a CEF segfault after closing the 
dictionary and IDE. My guess is that we are no longer using the CEF 
browser for the dictionary.
