bug#31188: 26.1; flyspell

Apologies -- it is indeed 'flyspell-auto-correct-previous-word' (and its keybinding 'C-;') that I intended to write! However, this function does cycle through candidates when invoked repeatedly in emacs 26.0.91 and does not do so in the 26 Rc-1. You are right that the function does not explicitly state that there will be this cycling behavior, but it is at least a change between emacs versions, and a negative one (it seems to me anyway) at that.

Is there other information I could give you (sorry - this is my first "bug" report).

'flyspell-auto-correct-word' doesn't seem to be working correctly.
According to the manual "If invoked repeatedly on the same position, it
cycles through the possible corrections of the current word." However,
it doesn't respond to repeated invocations. It just changes the spelling
to the first "correct" word it finds. Recipe for base emacs below.

Starting from emacs -Q, load flyspell in scratch buffer. Spell a word
incorrectly. Use 'C-;' to run 'flyspell-auto-correct-word'. Expected
result is that you cycle through some different word options until you
get the one you want. Actual result is that it changes the spelling to
the first option and doesn't cycle through any further. I don't have
this problem on the immediately prior developer release of emacs 26
(i.e. emacs 26.0.91).

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?
