The setting was just:

(setq ispell-personal-dictionary "~/.aspell.en_US.pws")

That file was just a plain word list. Above the setting I'd left this

;; ispell.el claims that the default personal dictionary should be
;; ~/.aspell.en.pws, while aspell itself thinks it should be
;; ~/.aspell.en_US.pws Right now I've changed the dictionary to what
;; aspell thinks it should be, and we'll see if that confuses ispell.el
;; at all.

Though TBH at a remove of several years, I don't really remember where
these ideas came from.
