I found a bug in last versions of aspell that wasn't there previously.
It probably doesn't show in the majority of languages, but
it shows in Walloon; as you can have words lake "hait-l'-ovraedje"
note the apostrophe followed by an hyphen.

This is not a bug but a limitation of Aspell. Aspell can not handle the case of two "middle" characters in a row. Aspell 0.50 accepted the word when creating a dictionary but it would never be able to check a word since the word will always be split into something like "hait-l" "ovraedje". Aspell 0.60 checks that words are valid before accepting it.
