Evolution doesn't spell check other language than English.

Description of problem:
Originally I only had aspell and aspell-en RPM installed and Evolution
allowed me to check spelling for English (American, British, Canadian)
but then I installed aspell-es RPM and Evolution doesn't show me the
option to spell check Spanish language.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@home root]# rpm -qa | grep aspell
[root@home root]# rpm -q evolution
I upgraded Evolution from a previous version, I don't know if that
could be causing the issue or it is another problem.
I was able to reproduce this bug at home and at office.
If you look under Tools->Settings->Composer Preferences->Spelling, do
you have Spanish listed as an option?
Oddly enough, it is now.
It wasn't there after I installed aspell-es, not even closing and
I guess that when I rebooted something made it work again (?). I'll
take a look at home's computer as well.
OK, now I am at home computer and I am seeing this behavior.
imoq@home [~] $ rpm -qa | grep aspell
imoq@home [~] $
But in Evolution -> Tools -> Settings -> Composer Preferences -> Spell
Checking I only have the options "English (American), English
(British) and English (Canadian)" available. I don't have a Spanish
option to choose from.
I am still trying to make Evolution display the Spanish language under
preferences. It doesn't, even if I have aspell-es installed. I don't
want to lose my settings, that's why I don't just rm -fr ~/evolution.
Do you know where can I look to add the Spanish (MÃ©xico) support for
I gave up, and when I upgraded to FC2 I just wiped out my ~/evolution
and started with a fresh one.
Oh, well, I guess I'll close this bug.
