Description of problem:
After update 4 was applied, the language list (part of the spellcheck
plugin) in gedit does not show "english". This means that the
spellcheck plugin will not check english text. I confirmed this
problem on several other updated boxes as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gedit
2. Turn on spellcheck plugin under preferences

Expected Results: "English" should be listed here.

However if I try and download them the links point to the already
installed versions, that is the .1 rather than .1:2 version.
The update aspell-*-0.33.7.1-25.3 has fixed this for me.
Yes, this update seems to have fixed the problem for me as well.
This bug was fixed in version -0.33.7.1-25.3.
