This bug I have found applies to dictionaries en-GB, en-US and gr (Greek).
It's happened in older Linux versions, I can't remember which, and in the current Windows version.
The "change all" command will remove periods placed next to all words that are corrected. This doesn't happen with the "change" command.

For example with this text:

I am curiouss. I am curiouss.
I am curiouss. I am curiouss.

Είμαι περιεργος. Είμαι περιεργος.
Είμαι περιεργος. Είμαι περιεργος.

After using just "change" for the first and "change all" for the second word I get.

I am curious. I am curious
I am curious I am curious

Είμαι περίεργος. Είμαι περίεργος
Είμαι περίεργος Είμαι περίεργος

If you are unable to use a Greek spell checker just use the English text.

Thank you in advance.

I verified with AOO 3.4.1 Writer on Windows XP with en-US dictionary.

Also tried a variation where there was a comma rather than a period.  The bug did not occur in that case.
