This question prompted me to examine some details in the repetition
check, and I've made some improvements for the next update.
There is a list of "stop words" that ignores common words expected to
repeat (like "the"). This helps speed up processing and avoid a lot of
issues, so I'd prefer to keep that in place. I've trimmed the list a
little bit for the update, though. While you can add to the list (via
Preferences->Proofing), you can't edit the default list. Here's the
current hardcoded list for reference: http://ckyp.us/1h05l
It also skips words less than 4 characters (which I've just changed to
3). A word like "up" will still be skipped, but I'm willing to
reconsider the necessity of that.
The biggest problem you're seeing is that it was set to ignore all
prepositions, which skips words like "along". I've changed that to
remove the limitation completely.
I also fixed some highlighting issues in the preview, and fixed the
"ignore word" feature (option-click a highlighted word).
I'll release the update as soon as I can wrap up a couple of other
