Hi Leonardo,

it seems prediction is still being used ... I'm a dutch speaker, and it
seems that when I enter the word "van", it predicts it to
"een" (because that word is in my personal prediction dictionary, from
before the changes).
If prediction is off, you should disable the use of any personal
dictionaries as well, as well as disabling saving to a dictionary.
