1. I don't think "occlude" means what you think it means.  See H.W. 
Fowler, "Dictionary of Modern English Usage", section "Love of the long 
word".  But seriously.  I love that book.  It's a hoot. (His chapter on 
split infinitives is even better.)

2. Did you read the Release Notes?  This is a known issue, in 
development but not worth holding up other critical things folks are 
demanding. As it is for this preview release, the Dict opens in a 
separate window, much as it does in the IDE. That the window happens to 
be a separate process is a minor annoyance, and likely to few.
