I've noticed that when one switches languages on the fly (using a keyboard shortcut, for instance), the suggestion pop-up is populated with suggestions in the new language, but it is still assumed that there was an error.

For instance, assume that my language is set to French. I then type
hello
and I see in the pop-up that I'm not in the correct language. I hit my "switch to English" shortcut, and the pop-up is updated to English words ... But with suggestions like "halo" or "hullo", as if "hello" was a mistake.

It would be great when switching languages to first check whether the word is still an error.

I think I looked at this once, for some obscure reason it was a problem. One thing I can think of is that if you choose a different language than the one you really wanted to, and the error clears, then if it's no longer an error, you're done...

Admittedly an uncommon thing (as is changing languages when the window's up), but maybe I can take another look. Won't be done in 10.2.2, though....
