Proof of Concept

Ensure you have at least 2 languages dictionaries installed - I have English (United States), and French.

  1. Go to: Settings > Composition
  2. In Spelling ensure "Enable spellcheck as you type" is checked
  3. Uncheck ALL languages (English (United States), and French for me)
  4. Close Settings
  5. ...
  6. Open a new message
  7. Close the message
  8. ...
  9. Go to Settings > Composition
  10. One of the languages is now checked. (Bug)

~~~~~~~~~~~ The reason I unselect all languages in Settings, is that I don't want a default language when I compose a message. I want to CHOOSE which of my languages I want to spell check with. The main reason I do this is that since 102, we can select multiple languages, which personally I believe is a bad idea, or at least the developers should implement a modifier key to select on and unselect all the others in one click.

In any case, we have a bug here. Thanks!
