      Right. It's because the popup menu replaces the word directly, not
      using "z=". This won't be easy to fix.

      This is because "z=" uses the context of the word, while the popup menu
      use the a spell function that doesn't see the context. Again, this will
      take some effort to fix.

      Any resemblance between the above views and those of my employer, my terminal,
      or the view out my window are purely coincidental. Any resemblance between
      the above and my own views is non-deterministic. The question of the
      existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold them is left as an
      exercise for the reader. The question of the existence of the reader is left
      as an exercise for the second god coefficient. (A discussion of
      non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism is beyond the scope of this article.)
