Mozilla spell checker

I use Mozilla spell checker in a french version. No problem for french texts. I can turn Mozilla editor to english, but the spell checker goes on using the french dictionnary, although I have the en-GB file in the 'usr/mozilla-1.4/components/myspell/' directory.
Is there any solution for this problem?
(I use Mandrake-9.2)

With me, it looks for en-US.aff and en-US.dic so I renamed the en-GB files en-US. It's a crude hack but...They're in mozilla/components/myspell, by the way.
