No change of my issue.

Good to know, thanks.

In a file whose local var is set to german8, I often have to change
to british or american. Therefore, I am using a custom defun of
mine. Does not work either.

Btw, I had to change from en_US, en_GB, and de_AT to american,
british, and german8 respectively. This was caused by an issue of
Windows [2] which I had to start using in addition to my Linux and OS X
boxes (sharing the same .emacs.d[1]).

With the old naming scheme (de_AT, en_US, ...) it worked fine at
least on my non-Windows machines.


  2. My Windows spellchecker is only able to use german8 instead of
  de_AT. My other boxes should be fine with both naming conventions.

All in all, one of the most disturbing things today is the definitive
fact that the NSA, GCHQ, and many more government organizations are
massively terrorizing the freedom of us and the next generations.
