The problem is not realy that there is no dic. The problem is that the 
spellchecker works without dic. It would be not so confusing if you see 
no red lines ;-) It would be good if the spellchecker put a message "no 
dicionary installed" an the screen instead of working without dic. But 
this is more a low priority issue.
