Isn't that supposed to happen? Maybe I'm not sure what you mean, then.

Ok, I'm pretty sure by now that I don't have a clue what you are talking
about. I guess I completely misunderstood you from the very first word. I
did some tests and I found nothing strange. I wrote some text, did that
automatic hyphen thing, some words were split as expected and hyphens were
added at the right places. I then added words here and there, and lines
were now splitted in other places. The hyphens that no longer filled a
purpose were still there, but when pre-viewing the document, or printing it
out, only the necessary hyphens are there, just as expected. I guess the
same thing happens when exporting to PDF, but I didn't try that. The
automatically inserted hyphens have a gray background and they take no
place, that's two ways to see the difference between automatically and
manually inserted hyphens.
Maybe you could just file a bug report, if you still are sure it's a bug,
and if you want it fixed.
