Hi Eli,

Toda, Ma nishma?

I used to use ispell4 for Windows but this was unsupported and old.

Then,I switched to Cygwin aspell because is just worked "out-of-the-box".
It worked ok for a long while w/out a problem and no need for customization.
(emacs just found it and worked with it ok, despite pipes).

The problem appeared with emacs 24.4.

I will try the Window speller you pointed.

Why are you using a Cygwin ispell with a native Windows Emacs?  This
combination could have "issues" regarding communications via pipes.
My recommendation is to use a native Windows build of a speller
instead.  Hunspell can be found here:
