Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kile

I had the word "discretizations" in my document.
I checked for spelling mistakes on the document.
It suggested "discretization" and "discretization s" (notice the space)
In the "Replace with:" text box I manually added the 's' back in. (Originally in that box was the first suggestion selected "discretization" I changed it to "discretizations").
I hit replace.
It came back to the same word. With the "Replace with:" text box having the same modified text "discretizations". (I added the 's' remember..)
I was like hmm...
Then I hit "replace all"
Now it is stuck in a loop where it selects descretizations in my document and replaces it with my change and then finds it again as a spelling mistake and replaces it again.
Kile is completely unusable. All I see is the same word getting replaced over and over again.
I am gono do an application kill...

Ok tried the same thing again and it happens again...
