User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021202

Description of problem:
Redhat 8.0 ships with
aspell --version
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell .33.7.1 alpha)
rpm -q aspell

If I run this version against large xml documents (DocBook DTD), aspell consumes
all memory and cpu but never displays any spelling errors.

So I downloaded the newest version, built it and installed it. Problem solved.

Time for y'all to step up. :-)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
spell check a big xml file.    

Actual Results:  most of memory consumed 
all of cpu consumed

Expected Results:  spell checking dialog should appear on console

Additional info:

Sorry, Can't send you the xml. Confidential.
