There is a bug report for the ### and for the dictionary issue (but the latter was closed
as fixed).
Never heard of a feature request to have a backup of the registrymodification.xcu file. Sounds
a good idea but still needs tweaking from user to restore the former file.

As for the spellcheck corruption, I noticed quite recently that it could be in fact a temporary
glitch. It happened on a big file (25MB), sometimes all the text is underlined and sometimes
there is no underline at all (even where there should be). This behavior disappear after some
time (haven't yet investigated what is needed, reboot or Windows session...).
