Issue in 2.015: Spell Check performance...
I saw this in 2.07 as well. Spell check performance is painful with larger articles. I went back and checked on 1.0, and saw similar issues.

The page discuss.fogcreek.com/CityDesk shows "(3 replies)", but I can only see two? What's up with that?
One was deleted.
Wouldn't it just be WONDERFUL if we could use Word's spelling checker!
And if you haven't got Word...?

John: I suppose the vast majority of Windows users (the only platform CD supports) has Word installed on their system.
It would in fact be possible to add Word-based spell-checking in either CityDesk or CopyBoy. Unfortunately, it would violate the license for the Word dictionaries.

Well, I was sure, but I checked the Word 2002 EULA and the specific language about the spell-checker seems to have been dropped some time since I last looked. The About box still shows those components as separately copyrighted by Lernout & Hauspie, though, and the EULA says that it's up to the copyright holders what you can do with separately copyrighted components.
Perhaps this is why the Word EULA changed:
