Sorry: didn't want to ruffle your feathers. It was a shot in the dark,
after all. It's difficult to hit a target if one doesn't see it .-)

Probably. I've found the one "embedded" message:

> Error running timer `speck-windows': (error "Process speck not running)

The message "Process %s not running" might come from send_process, a (C)
function which tries to send stuff to a sub-process. It issues an error
message like this if this process is gone.

So your best bet now might be to try to find out whether Emacs actually
starts an external hunspell process and whether this process survives for
long enough to be useful.

How to do this depends of course on your operating system. BTW: the version
of Emacs (and of speck) you're using might help others help you.
