Well, the CEF problem is one of the factors, yes. If it were only that 
and the IDE didn't try to display things in a CEF browser I could get 
around that. But I don't know what other parts of the IDE will start 
using the CEF library, and considering that everything that tries to 
causes me to force-quit and lose any unsaved work, that's a problem. But 
I know the CEF issues are being worked on frantically, and we've talked 
about that off-list, so I'm not trying to raise the issue here.

The all-but-invisible caret in field editing is also a pretty serious 
problem, and I see from the github stream that it's been fixed for dp9, 
so I'm also not worried about it - I'm just sticking with dp6 until the 
next dp release.

...and I now use Bernd's TinyDictionary instead of the built-in 
dictionary, so I don't need to try to monkeypatch the IDE for that. But 
gimme a clue as to where to find revIDEBrowserWidgetUnavailable and I'll 
give it a try just for giggles and let you know off-list.
