yeah. saw your trac bug. i know. it's just out of my focus at the moment. i'll
eventually cycle back around to it - and i'll not fix the bugs - i'll probably
do some radical surgery to the dict format and enigne. :)

i saw the one with duplicates - that shouldn't happen - but there likely is some
bug that makes it - somewhere... shouldn't. it saves - just not immediately.
you need to keep the dict idle for 5+ seconds - then it flushes and saves. that
means not adding any new words or modifying them for 5 seconds (ie take a pause
from typing and it'll flush and save).
