Moreover, most keystrokes, such as arrow navigation or page down, which
might be able to help this situation, are not accepted by the applet (it
doesn't take the focus?).

The window must be resizable, the lookup-word font smaller, less space
under the title, and a vastly better scrolling interface is needed.

The only way to use it right now is to try to highlight everything in
the window, and then paste it into another application to read it!

There also needs to be SOME way to make the window go away other than
mouse-clicking on the dictionary icon in the panel.

I'm using the latest Dapper. The problem exists regardless of whether the panel is on a side edge or top/bottom.
I believe things were much better under breezy, but I can't remember exactly how it worked.
