Description PJ 2012-07-03 17:37:47 UTC
Searchable dictionary throws an exception in MD and stops responding on device when debugged. When run on release mode, MD reports that "Application does not contain a launchable activity" in the status bar.

Steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Open Searchable dictionary.
2. Debug the application.

Application Output:
