Updated aspell packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Aspell is a spelling checker that features compile-time and run-time support for English as well as non-English languages and can spell check TeX, LaTeX, and HTML files.

Bug Fix

Using the "aspell dump master" command to create a dump of the master word list caused all of the words in the output to be truncated incorrectly. Specifically, the last letter of every word was cut off. This update fixes the string handling logic of the word lists, and output of the aforementioned command no longer contains incorrectly truncated words.
Users of aspell are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
