Description László Németh 2012-11-23 16:30:19 UTC
From Olivier Ronez: “I had a hard time to discover why there were strange false positives in Grammalecte, and the reason is that it seems that the grammar checker begins to work before Hunspell is ready to answer.

At the beginning of checking, when Lightproof/Grammalecte asks to analyze words morphology, Hunspell may answer nothing, and the grammar checker stores in "analyzes" an empty list for several words which exist in the dictionary. This may have no consequences at the moment (it depends what the rules are), but later when the grammar checker ask to analyze these words it still uses the empty result stored in "analyzes" and false positives may occur again.”
