I agree. Some feedback to users with no dictionary present would be a
nice-to-have. I realise this is a developer release but a project with
this profile will get users downloading it.

This problem, from a user perspective, is made worse by the fact that
this install (at least on windows 7) seems to hide away previous
installs of OOo so there is no longer a version with a working
spell-checker. We can try and warn users of this change, but they will
still download and complain.
