Thanks Eli.

I've now realise that I can of course use `M-$' (`ispell-word') in
exactly this circumstance and get a non-graphical menu, so I don't think
any patch is needed.

For completeness, I will add that I've noticed that in the natural
course of typing, point is well beyond a misspelled word before I notice
the highlighting, so there is the need to navigate back to the
highlighted word before using `C-c $' or `M-$'.

`M-x flyspell-check-previous-highlighted-word' comes to the rescue here
(I'll need to give it a binding in my settings), but I find that it has
some issues which I have reported in bug#21129.
