Hey there nice folks :)

The AutoComplete feature in OOO is very nice, but there's just one ehancement to
it I'd like to see. If I make spelling mistakes, the incorrectly spelled words
are of course collected along with the correctly spelled ones - very logical.
However, once I find the spelling mistakes and start correcting them, I think it
would also be very logical that the AutoComplete words database is updated to
reflect this correction. I think it's a safe assumption that if you correct a
word, it must mean something's "wrong with it" and the words database must be
"fixed" too, or am I not correct? Probably this wouldn't be very important if I
used the automatic spell checker but I simply hate spell checkers (they work
pretty well in English, but in Danish it's another story (we don't split nouns -
e.g. "gasoline pumping station" in correct Danish syntax would be
"gasolinepumpingstation", and that seems to freak out spell checkers all the
time. Don't know why I'm talking about this - I'll stop ranting now!)).

Cheers guys and girls, and thanks for a marvellous product :) MUCH better than
Micros~1 Office!

SBA: The activated AutoSpellcheck lets only "good words" into the 
WordCompletion List. Otherwise only the lenght counts.

Correcring a word the AutoCompletion suggested is not exactly the single key to 
have the list "Do what the user wants".

I think that having the SpellChecker filtering the words that get into the list 
without having it "active" in the document would be one solution.

Having a spellchecker that tolerates "composed words" (this is "legal" in 
German language too) would be another plus. Such long word are the very ones 
that save time when WordCompletion is used. Reassigned to BH.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
