Spell check in Alien's Libreoffice package not working

I have been using Alien's Libreoffice packages since he started putting them out. I don't think I have ever had to do anything to get spell check to work, but recently (v. 4.0.4 & 4.0.5), I can't get it to work at all. I've got it set to check spelling as I type & never get an indication of a misspelled word. I have set up a document with misspelled words in it, clicked on Spell Check, then gotten the spell check dialogue box, but it tells me that spell check is complete with no words marked. What have I missed or what do I have to do next?

I am looking at packaging the dictionaries differently for LibreOffice 4.1.x. That is why it is taking so long to release a new package... I have very little time for experimenting and every compilation of the LibreOffice sources takes ages.

@ WhiteWolf1776: Thanks. That did it.

@ Alien Bob: Thanks to you, again & again. I use a huge number of your packages in my -current installations and really appreciate the effort you put in.
