Spellchecking in OpenOffice2

Just in case somebody tries all the above and STILL can't spell-check...
I use OOo 1.1.3 and I lost my spell-checking ability for no apparent
reason (this has happened before). I "repaired" my installation. No
good. I reinstalled it via apt-get. Still no good. I ran the macro
referred to here in this thread. (Very nice macro, too.) Still
I then opened a NEW text file--and spell-checking worked on it. It
just wouldn't work on the document I'd been working on for several
weeks (with spell-checking working OK till today).
I opened a new text file and INSERTED the old document into it. No
Then I opened yet another new file and selected the text in a WEEK-OLD
backup of the old one and copied it into the new one, deleted the part
I'd just inserted from the more recent version, and spell-check started
working again. And my macros were intact, too.
OpenOffice.org is full of mysteries.
