You should avoid using "Open in New Navigator" in Navigator

I downloaded LC 9. I wasn't able to replicate the spurious/borked dialogs,
but I was able to get the command to fail. I fixed a few things, and
tweaked a few things. I am unable to make this update fail. Please have a
look at this and see if it still fails in your environment. You can get it
at either of these locations.

Thx
