Aspell does not work

I'm not an experienced Aspell user, but since others have problems with it I try to find which and how. And now I have this problem when I invoke ispell-buffer:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp nil)
  re-search-forward(nil 33 t)
  ispell-get-line(1 33 nil)
  byte-code("^Hb\210Æ ...
  ispell-region(1 347)

I'm not using some 'pure' Aspell installation but the cocoAspell service for Mac OS X (version 2.0.1, http://www.ict.usc.edu/~leuski/cocoaspell/home.html). Of course it has an aspell binary in /usr/local/bin, that allows to install other dictionaries. For GNU Emacs 23 I prepared some settings:

    (setq ispell-program-name "aspell")
    (setq ispell-dictionary "de")
    (ispell-change-dictionary "de")
    (set-default 'ispell-local-dictionary "de")

In the end I see aspell run as:

UID PID PPID CPU PRI NI VSZ RSS WCHAN STAT TT TIME COMMAND 501 20699 20696 0 31 0 49832 2224 - Ss ?? 0:00.06 /usr/local/bin/aspell -a -m -d de

In GNU Emacs 22.0.50 I see aspell too do ispell's job, although I never intended to allow this:

UID PID PPID CPU PRI NI VSZ RSS WCHAN STAT TT TIME COMMAND 501 20510 20480 0 31 0 49832 12040 - Ss ?? 0:05.36 /usr/local/bin/aspell -a -m -B

How comes this? How comes, that I can't finish a-spelling an ISO Latin-9 buffer:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (args-out-of-range "" 2)
  string-match(" " "" 2)
  ispell-parse-output("" ("best" "Dings" "Dungs") 0)
ispell-process-line("^ Dings und Dungs, die den Sachverhalt best\xf64tigen k\xf76nnen.\n" nil)
  byte-code("^Hb\210Æ ...
  ispell-region(1 2591)
