Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

It's very nice to be able to use the spell checking utility in Epiphany (Karmic) but I am finding that if I tell Epiphany to correct a misspelling it removes the selected text without replacing it with the corrected spelling.

Ubuntu version: 9.10 (with updates as of 10:00 am EDT today
Epiphany-browser version: 2.28.0-4ubuntu1

REPRODUCIBLE?: Definitely. It happens each time the steps below are followed. In fact it happened twice wile submitting this bug.

1. Launch epiphany-browser and surf to a page with a form you want to complete
2. Type in the textbox, making typos
3. Using the context menu select Spelling and Grammar: Check Document Now
4. Find a typo to be corrected, right click on it and select the proper spelling

The typo is replaced with the selected spelling

The typo'd spelling is removed but the corrected spelling isn't inserted
