A not found noise? It should open the context menu which is also  
available by control-clicking or right-clicking the word.

If you are on a laptop, you may need to use fn-option-F2.

This key binding should be pretty standard.

I have it just open the panel. I just tested a Cocoa field, and it  
seems that it both opens the panel, and jumps to the first (or next)  
misspelled word (what is also normally achieved using ⌘;)

If you open the panel after having used ⌘; it will be pre-populated  
with suggestions for the misspelled word -- that might be what makes  
you view it as random.

It might be good to make it consistent with cocoa fields, though IMO  
⌥F2 is an easier alternative -- having a key to replace with best  
guess, without bringing up any UI, is planned.
