I have to agree with you in general, but not with your example.
OOo should adapt if you press control+z (undo) immediately after the autocorrection. In general though I agree with you on the polish aspect. My particular issue is with lists. I have done some work in Word and lists and it was bad, but OOo has its quirks in this area also. I haven't isolated the exact steps yet to make a bug report though. And it may already be fixed in 2.0 Beta, I haven't checked.
One specific issue I have come across in Writer is referencing fields from a Calc spreadsheet (used as a "database"). When I make a change in the Calc "Database", the changes won't show in the Writer document for mail merge until I close and open the document again.
I haven't tried reproducing this on other machines yet, so it may be a bug with this machine's install.
