This is your fault :) You should not have assumed anything about the structure
of a dict object.

You can't. However, you can rewrite some parts of your code (this should not
represent many lines) to use only functions from the dict module when
manipulating dictionaries. This way, your new code will work fine with both
the old and the new Erlang version.
