My understanding/intuition matches Dom's.

Further, "Ignore" is probably only good for a single pass of the
"bulk" spell-checker. It doesn't appear on the right-click context
menu. I think it would be cool to have "Ignore" persist (and thus be
a good candidate for the context menu), but I think that is a
moderately hard problem since "a word" is only a vague concept in the
Abi code base.

"Ignore All" is good forever and does appear on the context menu.
(Well, "forever" means until you exit AbiWord, but that will change to
persistent behavior someday as soon as I get off my butt and
clean-up/check-in the changes for that.)
