[TSVN] Spellchecker oddities

All this was observed using en_US dictionary and using TortoiseSVN
1.2.1, Build 4168.

Typing any one or two letter "word" does not mark it as misspelled, even
if its not a valid word. If this is done to allow a "must type /n/
characters before inline spell-checking triggers" then perhaps it could
be modified so that the word will still be checked if a space is
inserted? This should provide the best of both worlds.

The second issue concerns 3 letter words and can be repeated as follows:
Type a 3 letter word such as "log".
It will not be underlined (Correct).
Add another letter to make the word misspelled. For example, make "log"
into "logg".
It is now underlined (Correct).
Press backspace to delete the extra 'g'.
The word is now "log" but it is still being shown and misspelled (Wrong,
the word is correct, it shouldn't be marked).
This does not occur on words 4 letters or longer in length.

The last comment I have is about the wavy line color. Blue is an
unconventional color for marking misspelled words and I sometimes find
it a bit hard to see. I'd prefer to see user customizable colors or at
least red as default . Blue doesn't contrast well enough with black
text like red does.

P.S. Thanks for fixing spell checking of numbers, that was an annoying
bug to me.
