Yes.  When the dictionary and the database match, iterating over valid
character sequences that making up potential words rather than regions
(such as a line) should eliminate these errors.

There are two drawbacks - I suspect performance would be degraded by the
increased process communication.  I could run some tests to see how much
that would be the case on systems I use, though I assume it could vary
substantially over different OSes.  The second is that this is a fairly
fundamental change that would require some considerable coding effort -
which is probably the biggest issue.  Someone needs to kick me to make
it happen.  I apologize that I have been very busy lately and this has
fallen off my list.
