Do you have the install log with DEBCONF_DEBUG=developer set from such
problematic install?

Looking at "apt-cache rdepends dictionaries-common", I suspect it wont

But perhaps a solution is to always install some wordlist package and
preseed to select it?  "apt-cache search wordlist" show the packages
provoding a wordlist.

When that is said, I believe we can drop all ispell dictionaries now,
and only provide myspell dictionaries, because I believe the packages
we care (Iceweasel, Libreoffice, KDE, etc)q about is able to handle
myspell.  The only package I know depending on ispell is emacs. :)

Happy hacking
