Aspell has fallaciously been marking all words over 12 characters long as incorrect.
It shows the very same spelling as a suggestion, but selecting the suggestion does nothing.

Additional info:
* aspell-en-6.0-3-any
* Haven't checked other languages.
* Rebuilding from abs fixes the problem.
* Forum thread:

Steps to reproduce:
Check a text file with twelve letter or longer words.
This task depends upon

seems that aspell dictionaries cannot be built with arch=any (see  FS#22348   FS#22443 )
