Spell checker: user cannot ignore multiple words using button

Calibre 5.38 / Linux Mint 20.1

There is an inconsistency with the spellchecker UI. If you select multiple words in the list, you can choose "Ignore all selected words" with the right-click dialogue. But the button to the right of the list only allows you to ignore the final word in the selection.

SUGGESTION: Modify the "Ignore" button command and label so that it applies to all the selected (highlighted) words in the list.

No ignoring only the current word is deliberate, as ignore is a hard to undo operation. If you want to ignore multiple words, right click on the word list and the menu has an option to ignore all selected words.
