Do you have a language selected for use in the composer settings?

Comment 2 Daryll 2003-03-12 22:11:46 UTC
Nope. Didn't have a language set. Setting english fixed the problem, but that
means we should change the bug. 

Saying no spelling errors found is a problem. It really should warn me that I
had no language selected.

It would be nice if Red Hat at least defaulted to english (but that would be
wrong for other countries) or set the language according user's language
preferences at login time.

There are some changes occuring upstream with the gnome-spell configuration
fitting in better with the composer
