Please exclude changed words in track-changes from "replace all" operations.
This is basically broken in LibreOffice.
When I enable track changes in a .doc or .docx file, and I "replace all"
"This is string one" with "This is not string one", it correctly replaces all instances and tracks the changes.
However, if I run the "replace all" operation again, it replaces the old string again. This is incorrect behavior. Replace all should only search the new string.
I can reproduce the reported behavior in 6.2.8, but only if Edit -> Track Changes -> Show (or View -> Track Changes) is turned on.

I'm not sure it's a bug, though. At least for "Find" to find tracked deletion seems reasonable.
Try a docx file (NOT odt). It happens there even if I do not enable view -> "Track changes".
It is definitely a bug though. Why would anyone want to return deleted words as result?

And even be able to replace deleted words by more deleted words creating an infinite loop on 'replace all'?
