No I think it's a fix.  `ispell' does not need to run in any particular
directory (i.e. it doesn't have to run in the directory of the file on which
you're working).  `default-directory' can be validly set to a non-existent
directory (either because it hasn't been made yet, or because it's on
a remote host, or ...).
So you may as well run ispell in ~/ and get on with your life.
