Dictionary has stopped working

I did have some weird problems associated with menu bars a few months  
ago which were never resolved.  I defined a set of menus for my main  
stack and set the option for them to be displayed in the Mac menu bar  
not the stack window.  After that, every time I ran my application my  
main stack window increased in height by the number of pixels that  
would be used for the menu bar if it had been in the stack window.   
This was a cumulative effect so the main stack window just kept  
getting bigger and bigger.

Was never able to solve why that happened even with help from folks in  
this list so I ended up setting the correct height of the stack window  
by script.
