My most common spelling error is "teh" for "the". I use "replace all" in teh
spell checker. The cursor goes to the last detected "teh". It continues doing a
spell check after that point. Any spelling errors between teh first and last
"teh" are missed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open teh mail compose window
2.Type text with multiple typos. Include many "teh" words.
3.Open spell check and start correcting errors. When you reach "teh", choose teh
"replace all" option.
4. Continue spell check. You will find that intermediate errors are not corrected.

Actual Results:  
Many remaining spelling errors.

Expected Results:  
The cursor should go back to teh first instance of teh corrected word, and
continue scanning from there.
