screenshot of test document with incorrect word count

Problem description: 

While recording changes and when Edit → Changes → Show is ticked, the word count will accurately reflect (subtract) any provisionally deleted text but fail to account for the words in newly added text.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open a new document
2. type "foo bar baz"
3. enable Edit → Changes → Record and Edit → Changes → Show
4. delete "baz" from the text and type in "qux"
5. check the word count

Current behavior: total word count is 2

Expected behavior: total word count should be 3

Maybe this is on purpose, but I personally find it misleading -- if provisional deletions are accounted for, additions should be too.

Operating System: openSUSE
Version: release
