Description of Problem:
Getting "unable to load module 'aspell'" errors, when trying to spell check in Balsa.  This seems to be a common problem, caused by incorrect pspell installation. (according to the author of balsa)  I think it may be something with Balsa, but no one really seems to know for sure what is causing it, in my search on the web.  Either way, Red Hat 7.1 as shipped does not install things in such a way that it works.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check spelling in balsa, any version, using the official red hat rpms for all the *spell modules and balsa.


Actual Results:

Expected Results:
Much spelling correction

Additional Information:
Tested with Balsa 1.0, 1.1.1, 1.1.6, 1.1.7

I believe this is fixed with the balsa-1.1.7 packages in rawhide.

This was a bug really in pspell package. I cannot find it in bugzilla but the
--changelog contains the entry describing the fix:
* Thu Jul 12 2001 Trond Eivind Glomsr?d <teg@redhat.com>

- Add the .la files in the main package - used for dynamic loading

Oops, that's right.
