Using 1.5.3 Rev 21438

I had the en_us installed and it didn't want to spell check.

With my environment LANG variable being set to en_AU.UTF-8 I then installed the hunspell_en_au dictionary, but again, no spell checking.

I then installed hunspell_en_gb and spell checking proceeded without any problem.

All a bit of a mystery to  me but as I don't use the spell checker, something I had not bothered about
