I cannot reproduce this if I invoke flyspell-auto-correct-word.
However, C-; is not bound to flyspell-auto-correct-word, it's bound to
flyspell-auto-correct-previous-word, whose documentation doesn't
promise to cycle through candidate corrections, and which is not
mentioned in the Emacs manual.

Could it be that you intended to type C-. or ESC TAB instead?
