Bug#412072: kedit: ispell language switching is bugged
Several editors in kde integrate with spelling checking (e.g ispell).
No problem if you only use one dictionary.
The problems come if you often need to switch language.
(This is an area where debian should excel. Think: language teacher preparing
worksheets, or student writing literature essays, or people with customers
abroad, or ...)
kwrite does the switching beautifully
kedit tries to do the same but is bugged
tries to do the same but is bugged differently (it pops up both a
checker in the changed language and a box saying you need to close
kword does it brokenly (it's not clear if it's trying to integrate in the
same way or trying to do it differently; but what it does is badly
broken: offering a languages unrelated to what is installed,
e.g. hebrew, and crashing if those are then chosen)
Please see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=409015, where I
described the correct behaviour of kwrite, and why kedit/kmail/kword do this
(I realise that I should have filed separate bugs to help track the
issues. Sorry about that. That's what I am doing now.)
Many thanks for looking at this. I'm sure switching languages is useful
for many people.

I'm told that there is a joke in Finland. If you speak three languages, you
are trilingual. If you speak only two languages, you are bilingual. And if
you speak only one language? Then you are English.
