I spent quite a bit of time testing this over the weekend. 
My conclusion is that your patch worked. The crash behavior has either gone or
you have extended it very far out into the future. 
The "freeze' behavior has changed. The entire program doesn't freeze. However,
the behavior that preceded it is still there, and is described below. 

What's supposed to happen: DictationBox is supposed to open quickly. Then the
user dictates text into it, says "Transfer that," and the DictationBox is
supposed to close and the text magically transfers into the open non-NatSpeak
application. (I use Notepad2 running under wine.)

What now happens: DictationBox works as promised for about 20 minutes. However,
after a while the command "Transfer that," becomes buggy. DictationBox does not
close right away, and usually text must be transferred manually by using CTL-V. 

Solution: (1) close the program and re-open it. (2) Open DictationBox. (3) TYPE
one letter into it and then hit "Transfer that." (The text may or may not
transfer.) (3) Close the program. (4) Re-open the program. 

My suspicion is that there is a buffer to hold DictationBox text, and that
buffer is either not being cleared or it's working space is somehow
