Spell checking in KDE applications does not work properly or not at all.
The global spell checking options in the systemsettings default to
"German" instead of choosing one of the country-specific options like
"German (Germany)". When I choose one of them, the "German" entry
disappears. As a result, and because the global options are completely
ignored by the applications, apps like Kopete where I can't find a
dedicated spell checking configuration window don't do any spell
checking. The console output says something like "No dictionary found
for 'de' ". For Konqueror, I can use the spell check configuration
window to set up the correct dictionary and it will work - but it
ignores the global setting here, too. The same goes for KMail, but even
if I manually set the dictionary there it does not work, and after
restarting the message composer it falls back to the "German" dictionary
- the setting is not stored.

This is Kubuntu 9.04 with all updates applied.
