Aspell, the GNU spell checker is what KDE uses for its library, or at least is 
what we are using by default with Kubuntu. There is a bug report 
( that brought my attention to 
this. By default we are running Aspell with the -C flag (run-together). What 
this does is allows two correctly spelled words to be "run together." Here 
are some examples

fishcat, dogcat, hotsmell, yesfish, and so on. Aspell in KMail, KWrite, Kate 
and what else marks these as correct when they surely aren't. What is 
everyones thought about having Aspell run without the -C flag by default?
