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.
