I think I see the reason for this: it's a stale cache from a previous
invocation of flyspell-auto-correct-word that is not flushed when you
type more text or move point.  So flyspell-auto-correct-word tries to
correct the same word het time you invoke it, no matter how far away
are you.

So it seems like it was an implementation accident after all (i.e. a bug), rather than a old behavior worth preserving.

Please try the patch below (you will need to byte-compile flyspell.el
after applying the patch).  If it gives good results, please run with
it for a while and see if there are any problems left.  If this change
has no adverse effects, I will push it.

It does fix the scenarios I could come up with. Looks like a good change to me, thanks!
