This is not "correct" behavior in the sense that other word processing programs do this. Both MS Word & WordPerfect save the words ingnored in the document. Thus, the expected behavior for anyone experienced in word processing is that a word ignored in a document will stay ignored. This, then, should be the behavior of AbiWord and I suggest you implement this change if you have been considering it.

Keep up the good work.
