I was about to report this bug for the previous version. As the subject says, the Whole Word option doesn't work for Project Replace - it seems to work as Contains.

For instance, take the following line:

"This morning Mo woke up early"

I want to replace Mo with David in the entire manuscript. However, with the "Whole Word" option selected, the line ends up as:

"This Davidrning David woke up early."

If the replace string matches multiple words, it will turn a manuscript into mincemeat.
