When spellchecking a message which has (speech marks used for clarity, not part of the composition) "etc." within it, it will flag up an error with "etc" part and suggest that "etc." is the correct spelling. If you accept this, you now have "etc..". If you then use the spellchecker again, it will flag "etc" as misspelt again, and add another full stop to make "etc...". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a componsition window with the "Write" toolbar button. 2.Type "etc." into the compose window (no speech marks) followed by a carridge return (optional, works without the return). 3.Activate the spellchecker with the "Spell" toolbar button. Actual Results: "etc." was listed as a "etc" being a misspelling of "etc.", in effect ignoring that a "." was already there. Expected Results: Reported no misspelt words.
Created attachment 165411 [details] Screen shot of spellchecker error. Here is a screen shot of the "etc." bug.
This would appear to be a dupe of bug 264393.
Actually, I think this one has a clearer description of the bug than in bug 264393. I suggest marking that as a dupe of this, and changing OS here to "All", since that one is on Linux (I see this on Linux, too.)
Also bug 234322
