LC 8.2.0-dp2 has nice new features but this one doesn't work.

When installing new extensions then LC 8.2.0-dp2 hangs while it is trying
to "add API to the documentation".

So one ends up having no extension.
(Yes I also tried after deleting the documentation cache.)

Reported #20557.

Work-around: Install the extension with 8.1.6/8.1.7.
Then one ends up in LC 8.2.0-dp2 without dictionary entries of the extension.

Work-around: Use TinyDict.

In sum: LC 8.2.0-dp2 works fine when installing extensions with LC 8.1.6/8.1.7
and using TinyDict.
