I have dl some more stuff, because I use them, but I don't recall that 
any of it should have had anything to do with the spell checker.

What will this full upgrade do, to Jessie?  If it is still wheezy, I 
am uptodate as of 4 hours ago, but I generally use synaptic.  

Because I am a LinuxCNC user, there are added lines in my sources.list:

gene@coyote:/etc/init.d$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src wheezy main contrib non-free
deb wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
deb wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb wheezy main
deb wheezy contrib main updates
deb wheezy main

And separately in sources.list.d, a linuxcnc.list

gene@coyote:/etc/apt/sources.list.d$ cat linuxcnc.list
deb wheezy 2.7-uspace base 2.6
deb-src wheezy 2.7-uspace base 2.6

deb wheezy master-rt
deb-src wheezy master-rt

deb wheezy 2.6-rt
deb-src wheezy 2.6-rt

both have now been purged again, but I expect I'd have to logout and 
back in to see if its fixed.  libhunspell seems to have a long list of stuff
that would have to come out with it, looking like it would demolish
the system.  Perhaps I now need to re-install it?

I'll reinstall libhunspell itself, take a nap & restart for S&G.

Thanks Lisi.
