v4.1.1 AND the updated English dictionaries
The auto spell-check does not flag misspelled words at all, nor does the Spell Checker function work at all.
It will ask you if you 'want to start from the beginning of the file', but it will close the dialog box as soon as you select OK.
I suspect the installation of the new English dictionaries as the culprit.
[same symptom on Windows 7 and Windows 8]

A very large proportion of spellcheck problems in AOO are cured by deleting or renaming the User Profile.
