Text Expansion does wierd things with longer words.
It suddenly replaces text snippets that are at the END of longer words.

I found that this happens after 12 letters.

Example:
"ch" should be replaced by "Cheers,"

When I type 123456789012ch[space] the text expansion replaces that with 123456789012Cheers,

That's a bug. So the default maximum length of a token is 10 characters. After which it is clearing the token, in this case that just happens to make it detect only "ch" and behave like it would outside of this situation.

In the next release, it will clear the token at max length but then set a flag to say stop examining characters until a trigger has been pressed (space, tab, etc) or the foreground window changes; which then resumes normal operation.

I have someone else testing a different fix, but I included this fix in the same unpublished release.

https://www.strokesplus.net/files/StrokesPlus.net_Setup_0.3.8.3.exe

So go ahead and test it out yourself as well, and let me know if this fix has any side effects.
