I did that without even thinking; it's always safe to have a trailing

Not here, it didn't.

Of course.  How else would I know it "worked"?

Anyway, here's the full recipe that works for me in Emacs 24.5:

 . emacs -Q

 . Insert this into *scratch*:

   (setq speck-hunspell-program (executable-find "hunspell"))
   (setq speck-hunspell-coding-system (quote utf-8))
   (setq speck-hunspell-dictionary-alist
         (quote (("en" . "en_US")
                 ("ru" . "ru_RU"))))
   (setq speck-hunspell-default-dictionary-name "en")

 . Mark all of the above and type "M-x eval-region RET"

 . Type "M-x set-variable RET speck-hunspell-library-directory RET"
   and type the correct directory, with the trailing slash, in quotes,
   at the prompt.

 . M-x speck-mode RET

Now type some mis-spelled word followed by a blank, and wait for a
second: the mis-spelled word will be marked with a red underline.
