With dictionary menu I mean the menu you get if you hover the mouse over a word and then hit ctrl-cmd-d. I use this quite frequently, also in other applications, where it is working fine.

I tried this with 2.43 on 10.7.1, and had no problems.  FWIW, TeXShop 3.06 (which Dick recommends) is the latest version for 10.7, and automatic updates in the 3.xx series won't happen until at least 3.07.  Visit the "Lion" page on Dick's website for details on the 3.xx series and Lion functionality:

As for reporting bugs, here's the page that describes the process:
It might be worth reporting this, at least so Dick can take a look.
