Success! Installing libaspell -dev does solve the problem on 32bit but not 64bit. When I started this thread I had 32bit installed, but later I installed the 64bit version to see if that would solve the problem (which it didn't). When the libaspell -dev solution came up I had 64bit installed and it didn't solve the problem. However, I've put the 32bit back on, installed libaspell -dev and it now works.

I know changing the OS to get a piece of software running is a lot of messing around, but at least we now have some valuable information. We need libaspell -dev for spell checking to work in 32bit, in 64bit - no solution as yet known.

aha. You would need the 32bit version of the libaspell-dev libraries installed in 64 bit then to get it working under that. To be honest its a long time since I had to do any serious cross architecture work like that. I *think* the solution under debian these days is a 32bit chroot.
