After an update of some kind, Swype stopped adding new words to the dictionary - the option to add simply no longer appeared. This may have been after a swype update to allow you to backup your dictionary.
Anyway, it was driving me mad, as my old words vanished and I couldn't add any new ones. So names of people, swear words etc were suddenly tedious.
