Confirmed with LibO 3.4.2 RC1 on WinXP 32b
[LibreOffice 3.4.2 OOO340m1 (Build:201)]

Each sentence with the currently proved (misspelled) word will be deleted, if the box 'Check grammar' has been activated/deactivated during 'Spelling and Grammar' (F7).
(Regardless of closing the 'Spelling and Grammar' dialogue.)

The deleted sentence can be restored by 'Undo'(Ctrl+Z).

Tested with bundled dictionaries German (Germany), French (France), and English (USA).
Tested with/without LanguageTool 1.4.

Caolán, could you please have a look at that?

Thanks for the bug report.
On which operating system did you find it?

Comment 4 manj_k 2011-08-19 05:53:42 UTC
Also reproducible (on WinXP 32b) with, e.g.:
OpenOffice.org 3.3.0
OOO330m20 (Build:9567)

Not reproducible with, e.g.:
OpenOffice.org 3.2.1
OOO320m18 (Build:9502)

Not only a LibreOffice bug.
Comment 5 Caolán McNamara 2011-08-19 06:38:58 UTC
Grammar checking is not related to hunspell FWIW
Comment 6 Caolán McNamara 2011-08-19 08:09:11 UTC
I don't see this. Are you sure it happens without language tool installed, which is the configuration I tried.
Comment 7 Caolán McNamara 2011-08-19 08:16:24 UTC
Maybe this is a windows only thing.

and/or maybe its keyboard focus even. Does it happens when selecting/deselecting options->"check grammar as you type" when using the mouse ? Is that the only option that does it, or do the other make a difference.
Comment 8 manj_k 2011-08-19 12:41:52 UTC
Reproducible with LibO 3.4.3 RC1 (on WinXP)
[LibreOffice 3.4.3 OOO340m1 (Build:301)].

Extension LanguageTool not installed.
Test 'fdo#39348_sample.odt' with text part en-US:

Screenshot 1: 'step_1_en-US.png'
Initial situation <F7>.
Starting with "He heard quiet stepps behind him. [...]".
Option '☐ Check grammar' is disabled (or vice versa).

Screnshot 2: 'step_2_en-US.png'
If the option '☑ Check grammar' is now enabled (or vice versa) with a mouse click, then the sentence "He heard quiet stepps behind him." will be deleted.
'Ctrl+Z' (Undo 'Overwrite: $1') will restore this sentence.

Comment 11 Caolán McNamara 2011-08-21 08:53:28 UTC
hmm, how come I don't *have* that checkbox.
Comment 12 manj_k 2011-08-21 10:46:00 UTC
This option seems to be a part of the Grammar Checking Framework (GCF).
It will appear for the first time (UI), when a grammar checker (extension) has been installed. Then it will remain, even if the grammar checker has been uninstalled.

[ Tried with:
- Lightproof grammar checker development framework
- LanguageTool
http://www.languagetool.org/ ]
Comment 13 Caolán McNamara 2011-08-22 03:26:07 UTC

I can reproduce this now.
Comment 14 Caolán McNamara 2011-08-22 03:36:23 UTC
Fixed as http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=63eef1c1cf203aa75093b479a1e8dd24593546e7 for master (i.e. >= 3.5)

Toggling checkbox doesn't delete entire sentence anymore. I wonder if we want this backported for a 3.4.X.
Comment 15 manj_k 2011-09-17 14:04:43 UTC
Verified with
LibO Master - LibO-dev 3.5.0 Build ID: 8cc839d-3dca5fd-4525197
Thanks, that works fine. :)
Comment 16 Björn Michaelsen 2011-12-23 13:23:48 UTC
Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.
