Auto-capitalization annoying and incorrect[BUG LOGGED]

When working in a text box, if I type the following:

Blahbitty blah (huh?) yxxx

the "Y" is automatically capitalized, because it thinks I'm starting a new sentence because of the question mark (or exclamation point) in the parentheses. Worse, if I hit control-Z to uncapitalize it (which tends to work in Word and in email), it sends me back to the beginning of the word -- and if I then move the cursor to the end of the word, it capitalizes it again.

So: Auto-capitalization when it shouldn't happen, and difficulty in canceling the auto-capitalization.

I've had similar idiosyncrasies with the auto-capitalisation on.

Most notably, it capitalises after an ellipsis (...) and like the previous poster, I've had trouble finding an easy way to tell it to stop or to change it after it's happened.

Still loving the software though!
