Problem description:
Right-click --> "Add to Dictionary" function's usefulness compromised.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new document
2. Type an unusual word (e.g. longsuffering)
3. Type a space or something else to make auto-check underline the word with a red zigzag.
4. Right-click word, select "Add to Dictionary". Notice red line is gone.
4. Save doc and restart LibreOffice.
5. Open document. Notice red line is back.

Current behavior:
"Add to Dictionary" only adds the word temporarily, until I restart LibreOffice.
Expected behavior:
"Add to Dictionary" should keep the word in the dictionary.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: release

May be duplicate of 60833, but I'm still getting the problem in version

On pc Debian x86-64 with 4.2.6 LO Debian package, I don't reproduce this.

For the test, could you rename your LO directory profile and give it a new try? (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#GNU.2FLinux)

(I also put fdo#79276 because I had made some changes about dictionaries for this one and perhaps I made something wrong)
