Spellcheck problems with capitalisation
Binary package hint: gedit
When gedit finds a misspelling, it doesn't do a good job of taking capitalisation into account.
For example, the misspelled word "Iittle" (note the upper-case "i") gives the suggestions "Tittle", "Little", "Vittles"...all of which have the first letter capitalised. However, it doesn't suggest at all "little" with a lower-case "L" as a possibility, but instead assumes that the original capitalisation is correct.
This problem happens in the opposite direction too: "WAlT" (note the lower-case "L") gives the suggestions "Walt", "Alt", "Waltz", "Wale",
Since gedit uses enchant for spell-checking, I'll also assign this bug to enchant. However, gedit could be doing a better job with sorting the suggestions ("wast" before "wait"??)
