Problem description: When adding custom words to the Dictionary (people's names, in my documents so far), the Spell Checker seems to "forget" these custom words when you relaunch LibreOffice, until you run Spell Check again
Steps to reproduce:
1. Type a misspelled word intentionally
2. Add it to the custom dictionary (right click word and select Add)
3. close LibreOffice. It does not matter if the quickstarter is closed or not
4. reopen LibreOffice, and reopen the document you were working on
Current behavior: Misspelled words that you Added to the custom dictionary are flagged as misspelled. If you run the spell checker, or select one of the misspelled words (it does not matter which word - and there can be more than one of the same and/or different words, or there could be just a single word), the spell checker seems to remember that you added those words to the Custom dictionary.
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: 184.108.40.206 release
Last worked in: 220.127.116.11 release
Oops, hit the Submit button too soon.
Current Behavior, Continued: Every time you launch LibreOffice, these words will be flagged again, and you will need to rerun spell check, or right click a word and choose Add again. When you do these, the Spell Checker will "remember" the Custom dictionary, and all custom words will be un-flagged.
Expected Behavior: Words added to the Custom dictionary should not be flagged as misspelled

Thank you for reporting this bug,
I can reproduce this bug running LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 on Windows 7.
Created attachment 74879 [details]
Test document. Steps are inside.
It seems to be a regression against LO 3.4.
I see the problem also with LibreOffice 22.214.171.124, and 126.96.36.199. It works fine with 3.4.6. I tested it with the official Linux build on SLED11-SP2, x86_64 with the above attached test document.
Thanks for updating the version information. My guess is that, through the life of 3.5.x / 3.6.x, I never added custom words to the Dictionary - and thus never saw it creep up until 188.8.131.52.
I'm using Windows 8 Pro 64-bit when I came across the bug
I think this is something like this user defined dictionary isn't stored (for some currently unknown reason) as an "active" dictionary, so its disabled when you restart LibO.
Removing comma from whiteboard (please use a space to delimit values in this field)
Interesting - this doesn't happen for me:
LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 release
Used the test case and it was fine - locale issue?
CONFIRMED LO 220.127.116.11.beta2 + Ubuntu 12.04.3

To be more clear, if you merely Right Click on one of the red-underlined words that you previously added (and then left-click elsewhere), then ALL of the red-underlined, previously-added words will lose their red underline
Re: spell checker
Yes, merely launching the spell checker (Tools -> Spelling and Grammar) seems to have the desired effect.
(This is an automated message.)
Setting priority to highest as this is a 4.2 MAB. This is part of an effort to make the importance of MAB reflected in priority too.
A solution/workaround for this seems to have been identified for an earlier version of Libreoffice: see Bug 52176, Comments 7,8 and 9.
Another 4.2 MAB filed against 3.x?
