Can I just add, thinking with my user hat on, this can be somewhat of a
shock to the user - principle of least surprise etc and "why when I'm
typing fast do I get lots of stuff as a single event, and when I type
slow I get individual characters as single events?".

There's an argument for saying that redlines should break on eg a cursor
move, or a sentence, or a paragraph. Imho moving the cursor should
always trigger a new redline event regardless of what else is going on,
and when you're just generally typing, being able to select per sentence
or paragraph would be nice.

(Oh, and I think it's been fixed, but does autocorrect now trigger a new
redline between the user edit and the autocorrect? I remember having
apalling grief years ago trying to stop Calc (or was it a table)
corrupting what I was typing. I couldn't disable autocorrect - the
normal box said it was disabled - and every time I tried to undo the
auto-corrupt, it deleted what I'd typed as well.)
