5.Run the flow.
6.Add wrong text to RTE and click on spell check icon.
7.Once spell check is done, change the radio button value. It does not refresh the section.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules :-

A permission denied JS error occurs on refresh section after spellcheck, as the getListeners API is trying to access an orphaned RTE body. 
Spell checker adds event listeners to RTE's body and when editor's setData is called in pre-submit function, it refreshes the body with new element.

Now the listener still holds reference to old orphaned element.


Apply  HFix-26691 for RTE spell check and HFix-23749 for spell checker icon.
