No, I wouldn't expect you to. It seems to be something of a known
problem as Apple removed the ability to set global environment
variables a few versions ago.

Sorry for confusing matters with this.

Look again, I do. Emacs has set LANG to "ENG" so hunspell is ignoring
"default".

And, again, copying en_GB to ENG solves it. I can deal with this.

Sorry, on OS X.

I feel that the way ispell handles a misconfigured hunspell is, at the
moment, not very helpful. I can provide a patch that I believe makes
it fail more gracefully, but I'm getting the feeling it's behaviour
that's not wanted.

Shall we call it quits?

Thanks and apologies for any frustration caused.
