When the words are removed from user dictionary, the file is not truncated, creating either parasite entries, or, if invalid UTF-8 was produced, the entire dictionary is no longer available.
I don't want to be rude, but following your backlog (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&emailreporter1=1&list_id=235619&email1=davian818%40gmail.com&product=LibreOffice&emailtype1=substring) you are experienced enough to know how to report a good bug report.
Reading your bug report Description I have no clue how to reproduce your reported behavior, or what you're actually meaning... So I need to mark this bug as NEEDINFO to ask you for *steps* how we can reproduce your behavior.
Please read https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport#Detailed_explanation_of_bug_reports_content and especially 'Steps to reproduce the problem'. Try to see it from our, the QA team, point of view. You know what's wrong, and you know what you're talking about... be we don't and we would like.
I hope you understand.
Thanks for helping LibreOffice
OF COURSE you don't understand what I was talking about.
1. Create a user dictionary with some words
2. Remove a word from it
3. See the file having the same size and remnants of the last word in the end.
Now, which part of this is not clear from my original description? I smell a troll.
Urmas - Joren is a dedicated contributor and has correctly pointed out that you routinely fail to provide steps to reproduce. Please don't attack him for pointing out our policies
a code pointer still isn't what QA needs to verify the bug. Please take a look at Rainer's reports:
As you can see he clearly outlines the steps for every bug that he submits, on top of this he gives us exactly what version he's using as well as his operating system. We ask that our more experienced bug reporters + QA staff do this to make the QA workflow work as we expect it to
@Urmas (in reply to comment #2):
1. create the user-defined dictionary, and
2. remove the words
via menu 'Tools > Options > Language Settings > Writing Aids'?
Then it is apparently a duplicate of 'Bug 42122 - Deleting entries from user-defined dictionaries does not work properly'.
For 16 month no basement dweller had an attention span enough to produce a one-liner fix...

Urmas - as you have violated #4 above, I am linking you to the official policies for FDO.
