bug#32471: 26.1; ispell throwing wrong-type-argument stringp nil on Wind

Subject: bug#32471: 26.1; ispell throwing wrong-type-argument stringp nil on Windows 10, with emacs 26.1 and hunspell

Bug can be closed.

It's not really a bug per say, just that hunspell must have a dictionary for your exact locale. Even if you have en_US dictionary, if your locale is ENU, it won't work. So make sure you have a dictionary of that exact name, that is, <locale>.aff and <locale>.dic in your hunspell dictionary folder, and all will work again.

Thanks for helping me out with this issue.

OK, so can this bug be closed?  Or is there something else left to do
about it?

There is, but why would you want to do that?

Anyway, there's set-locale-environment.  But beware: it changes quite
a few of locale-related settings, so it might not be what you want.
