As far as I can tell, from advising on the Forum, most spellcheck problems arising from loss
of spellcheck on a previously working system are due to over-hasty power off of the computer,
without leaving time for the hardware write buffers (which are internal to the hard disk)
to flush the User Profile to disk.  

On old (OOo) linux installations (circa Ubuntu 8.04) it was not unusual for a fresh OOo install
to start with faulty spellcheck; the solution then, as now, was to delete the User Profile.

We do not have detailed knowledge of how the users reporting faulty spellcheck on installation
actually install their AOO; very frequently they try peculiar methods rather than simply double
clicking the downloaded .exe file
