621 xxx other hyphenator bugs. PB: not as much incorrect as well as weird-looking.

 633 xxx double hyphenation in compounds -> feature of the command line hyphenator; Koskivuori-plánenreaiddut still not hyphenated correctly
636 xxx Hyphen in front of final consonant

Under investigation by Polderland

Div Pld Description
 549 xxx missing hyphens at word boundaries - noaiderumbbuid (accepted by speller)
630 xxx Word (prefix) with hyphen is rejected - and suggested
645 xxx borgguhan-gihppagis gets the hyphen on the next line
652 xxx UPPERCASE-typos only get acronym-suggestions: VARI -> no sugg, vARI -> VÁRI as sugg
656 xxx User word list "gets full" (as reported by users): repro only if millions of words are added, but related to memory. Word gets very slow if the list goes over 100 000 words or so. This is in Office 11 (2003). In Office 12 (2007) the user dictionary is managed entirely by Word. -> feedback from users on version, tests for office 2007 by Polderland.
