Autocomplete before punctuation. Autocompletion does not work unless the cursor
is at the end of a line or there is a space immediately to its right, so you
cannot put the cursor at the beginning of a word and type a new word using
autocompletion. This is okay except that it does not check for punctuation, so
you cannot put the cursor immediately before a comma, period, colon, etc. and
type a new word using autocompletion. 

Also, autocomplete can suggest a word that starts in English characters but ends
in Japanese kanji characters, but if you are typing in an English font, the
kanji part will show as square error glyphs (corrupted characters known in
Japanese as “bakemoji†because there are no corresponding characters in the
English font). Not technically a bug, although theoretically it should be smart
enough not to do that, especially if you never select its bakemoji suggestion.

There are two things here, the second you need to file as an RFE in a different

The reason this doesn't work is that the autocomplete/correct is checking
against a list of words. If what you are type triggers the list it corrects it.

At best this would be a feature request because the behavior is as expected.
This still happens in 1.9.92.
