Aloha all,

I'm installing emacs 23 on my OS X 10.5 system. The Emacs Wiki helped me with a configuration in .emacs to find Cocoaspell and its dictionaries. These load now, but I get this error:

Spell-checking tsd_135_drr.tex using aspell with english dictionary...
Spell-checking region using aspell with english dictionary...done
ispell-get-line: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

I googled a bit but didn't find anything useful. If someone can get me started in the right direction, I'll be thankful.

All the best,
Tom

This problem "went away" without any apparent intervention from me. Looking at the cocoAspell web site again, perhaps this was the culprit:

In some rare case the first time you spell check a document, cocoAspell may fail to come up with a list of suggestions. It happens because the spell server needs some time to load the dictionary and initialize itself. The client application simply times out on the spell checking request and behaves as there were no suggestions. This may not happen at all if you have a fast machine.
Apologies for the noise level.

Tom
