I'm using ispell, and the pws stuff seems to be working, except ispell 
calls it something else.  It appears that it updates the main file as 
the date is today, about the correct GMT time when I added your name:
gene@coyote:~$ ls -al|grep .ispell
-rw-r--r--  1 gene gene      920 Oct 10 07:37 .ispell_american
-rw-r--r--  1 gene gene      278 Oct 24 20:31 .ispell_american-huge <this 
one
-rw-r--r--  1 gene gene      616 Oct 13 21:58 .ispell_default

But all 3 are quite small, so it must source another master file.  I'd 
have to assume so as theres a whole passel of ispell stuff in /var/lib.

While I'm happy, I'm not dancing, I came down with a sore throat about 3 
hours back.  So I'm using Halls lozenges like they are M & M's.
