Well I have to say that it doesn't work always as expected... :/ I'm 
comparing the prediction of the illume keyboard with the one of the 
qtopia keyboard and using the same dictionary (well, in different 
formats but it contains in both cases the same 446674 words).
So, using the qtopia keyboard the correction applies always, while with 
the illume keyboard the more the word is long and more the 
typo-correction fails.

Using smaller dictionaries the things improves, but my dictionary isn't 
complete yet :o!
