Description Urmas 2015-01-09 17:25:52 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #88214 +++

The attachment 111980 [details] causes the endless loop immediately after opening, seems to be depending on the font used.

Perhaps Windows only. 

Urmas - does this affect 4.4 at all?
Comment 2 Urmas 2015-01-10 05:54:40 UTC
Yes, it is in too.
Comment 3 Buovjaga 2015-01-15 20:09:46 UTC
No repro with 4.5 alpha, but it loops with 4.4 RC2.
I left it for a while and when I came back, there was a red spellcheck line going to the right all the way across, beyond the page border. Scrolled a bit, went to loop again.
I don't have any spellcheck in 4.5.

Can you confirm it with 5.1 or newer? Otherwise I would suggest to close this.
Comment 6 Joel Madero 2016-05-06 16:49:48 UTC
Given that Buovjaga already said it's working in 4.5 but was broken in 4.4, I'm going to just close it as WFM.

@Urmas - if confirmed on 5.1 just set it back to NEW and leave a comment. Thanks
Comment 7 Buovjaga 2016-05-09 10:30:37 UTC
Yep, it doesn't loop for me in 5.1.2 with spellcheck.
