If you don't want it as the default mode, you
shouldn't, of course. But now I don't understand your
problem anymore (if I ever did).

That doesn't seem to carry anything LaTeX specific,
which would look along the lines of:

(setq latex-mode-hook (lambda ()
(flyspell-mode 1)
; other modes and options
))

OK? I never did Fly in LaTeX, but I did do ispell-buffer'
and that catches most text areas. Sometimes there can
be problems in certain constructs, e.g.:

\def\hierarchicalscheduler{A hierarchical
scheduler is a scheduler that consists of
several schedulers that are organized
hierarchically, in a tree structure. ... }

Perhaps because of the braces ispell-buffer' doesn't
catch mistakes in between, so I use ispell-region'
for those.

But for common usage, including
\subsection{sphelling}, it works fine.

Serious programming is typically not about spelling :)
If you have tons of text in your programs, consider
moving them to textfiles and the like (perhaps XML if
it involves advanced interaction, e.g. a RPG with
dialog trees etc.). For but a few error messages and
the like in a C program you might be helped by
ispell-comments-and-strings'.

And for Gnus messages: ispell-message'. None of this
is on the Fly but I thought I'd mention it. Check out
some more work on this:
