Hunspell bug resolution process could use some speedup.

Sorry, no.  I tried that initially, but this work-around has problems
(don't remember the details, though).

It is much better to rebuild Hunspell with this bug fixed.  I can give
you a patch for that if you need it (I think there's a patch in the
bug database as well).  I fixed my hunspell long ago, and never looked
back.  Or ask your distribution's maintainers to release a fixed
hunspell distro.

Thanks.
