Some comments after debugging a bit:
`ispell-process-line' sets the variable `replace' to the result of
`ispell-command-loop'. `ispell-command-loop', however, returns the
_old_ word. Why?
In `ispell-command-loop', search for the cond-clause of (= char ?\C-r).
The clause returns (list word nil), where `word' is the (old, unchanged)
current word. There is this comment at that position:
; recheck starting at this word.
If I change the clause so that it just returns nil, the bug is fixed,
but the replaced text is not being checked again (I could live with
As a fix, we could try to return something reflecting the change that
was maybe made in the buffer.
