Ah. I installed the precompiled package from Liv's PPA, so I guess he compiled it without Aspell (which is fine with me).

When you do "lyx -version" the special build flags line will contain entries like use-enchant, use-hunspell, that tell you what spell checkers have been selected.

Not that enchant is a wrapper library that relies on other spellcheckers that can be aspell, hunspell, etc.


Looking at the enchant ordering file (and what is installed on my system), it appears that enchant is using aspell. So the crash with 2.2.3 occurred when aspell was invoked directly but not when it was invoked through enchant.

Curiouser and curiouser.
