Description I.E. Saridakis 2019-09-22 12:03:49 UTC
LO Writer hangs when spell-checking a Greek document (even, txt) containing capitalised words. The Greek spellchecking component is my-spell-el-gr (0.9-1), but the bug is reproducible also with hunspell-el (1:6.0.3-3), on a Linux Mint 19.2 machine.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any txt doc containing mixed normal and capitalised words.
2. Spell-check the doc. 

Actual Results:
Hangs every time, with different documents, after the first or second capitalised word is encountered, and it is necessary to kill the app.

Expected Results:
The spellchecking should normally complete.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

The bug shows up when

1. a capitalised Greek word (e.g. "ΚΑΝΟΝΙΚΟΤΗΤΑ") which is not recognised by the dictionary/spell-checker appears more than once in a string (paragraph); and
2. "Ignore all" is selected during the spell check process; if "Ignore once" is pressed, spellchecking runs as expected.

This bug is present only from LO 6.3 - spellchecking the same document in previous releases is flawless.

Thanks for your attention,
Yannis Saridakis

Problem is happening when using 'Ignore all', it seems a dupe of bug 127060
