I tend to disagree here (but have good news),

ispell process should not be restarted unless needed. And if needed should
be restarted. Other behavior may make more harm than good and hide
underlying problems.

The good news are that seems I found the underlying problem (at least for
the single extra ispell restart). Directory value, being the same, was 
sometimes set with unexpanded `~' and sometimes with it expanded, so they 
looked different to the comparison operator. 

I am testing attached patch that should make the expanded version to be
used everywhere. I am testing it along with a dirty hack in .emacs

(setq ispell-local-dictionary "american")
(load "ispell")
(setq ispell-program-name "aspell")

that should start an ispell process. With the attached changes at least
extra restart seems to be fixed.

If I see no further problems I will commit changes soon, so you can test
them in your box.

Thanks for your feedback,
