Salute, LO-fans,

I have a problem with spell check:

"This is a rong sntence with man mistokes."

spell check <f7>
marks with a red underline what should be changed.
So far so well.

1) When adding manually "w" before "rong" and pressing change, spell check
will jump back to the start of the paragraph and start checking it again
while deleting all hard-formats (like bold) in that very paragraph.

2) When adding manually "y" at the end of "man", the next red mark ist
not "mistokes" but a black "m" and red "istokes". Now you can
replace "istokes" with "mistakes", however the text will read as "mmistakes".
This shift of the red mark ist continued with the following words. This
misbehaviour occurs only, when two incorrect words follow each other.

Debian Linux, LO 4.0.4 (download 11.07.13), checked with german.

Can someone confirm this? In that case, I would submit a bug (I screened the
bug list already without finding a reference).

Perhaps I am not doing this the way you are?  But I copied/pasted
    "This is a rong sntence with man mistokes"
into a new LO text document and ran spell check on it with the end result of
    "This is a wrong sentence with man mistakes "
without encountering any difficulties.

I don't see a way to manually add a "w" within the spell check dialog box ... perhaps I am just not looking in the right place?
