Not sure what the problem is - might be in Mobipocket and not this file at all, but the combination isn't working for lookups from other documents, at least for me.
Just in case anyone else is still pondering this somewhat "ancient" problem:

Today I had exactly the same problem with the file (or any other dictionary files for Mobipocket) under Mobipocket 5.3 on my Zire 72. Setting a dictionary under preferences caused a fatal exception.

So finally I tried putting a demo-file of a commercial dictionary on to the Palm Zire. And after activating the fulltext search option in this demo dictionary ... wow ... the word lookup function worked with the GICDE
