Description Jon Stanley 2008-05-27 00:59:58 EDT
In the attached screenshot (of a presentation on bug triaging for FUDCon no less
:) ), note that there are squiggly lines beneath words that are obviously
spelled correctly.  There had been typos in both of these previously, however,
they were not removed when the words were corrected.  Locale is en_US

I know that this is a pretty lame bug report, what more info would be helpful here?

Comment 2 Jon Stanley 2008-05-27 01:04:05 EDT
Interestingly enough, deleting the last character of both of those words and
putting it back caused the words to be spelled "correctly".
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2008-05-27 03:15:44 EDT
Are they considered misspelled or is it a drawing problem where the red squiggle
isn't getting refreshed ? e.g. minimize the app and restore it, do the red lines
remain, and use the tools->spell check to see if it says those words are
misspelled. My guess would be a drawing problem
Comment 4 Jon Stanley 2008-05-27 14:06:54 EDT
Yep, minimized the app, and it came back with the red line.  Did a spell check,
came back fine, and the red line disappeared.

Is this reproducible for you, if so then stick the same document in here. It
might be a redraw problem, which would be hard to track down unfortunately. It
is also worth mentioning your X driver as well in case it is a redraw problem
and not completely OOo's fault. There was a weird-ass bug for example with
radeon drivers in the past where an "r" was drawn like a "n" which was specific
to radeon

Comment 7 Jon Stanley 2008-05-27 15:21:53 EDT
Yeah, I can reproduce it fairly reliably by making a typo, and correcting it. 
I've attached the document here.
Comment 8 Jon Stanley 2008-05-27 15:30:16 EDT
Oh, and the hardware is a Thinkpad R61 with Intel X3100 video (xorg-x11-drv-intel)
Comment 9 Caolan McNamara 2008-05-28 06:53:51 EDT
As I feared, this doesn't happen for me on my nv hardware of my i810 based D430
:-( The red line disappears immediately as soon as a fix the spelling.

If you're up for it you could check if it happens with setting your xorg.org
driver to "vesa" or adding Option "NoAccel" "1"
Comment 10 Caolan McNamara 2008-06-12 12:05:19 EDT
a) is accessibility enabled, i.e. what does 
gconftool-2 -g "/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility"
b) or do you have compiz enabled ?
