1. Using English Windows XP create (My Computer-right click, Manage, Local 
users and Groups, right click Users) new user with non-Latin characters in 
2. Logon as that user, run Writer, type some misspelled word, right-click it - 
you do not get "Add" option in context menu.
3. Press Esc, F7 - you get spell-check dialog. Click "Add" button - you do not 
get dictionary choice.

Any chance for 3.2?
Comment 2 klonos 2008-12-24 12:02:17 UTC
This is a known issue. It usually occurs if the username contains national
characters. Sometimes it happens if for some reason there is no standard.dic
file under the user profile.

For WinXP, standard.dic should be under:

	C:\Documents and Settings\[user_name]\Application

The issue can be worked around if you place a copy of standard.dic from a
working installation (a user profile with Latin characters only, or from another
computer) under the above mentioned directory.

please consider this issue for 3.2.

Thanks a lot for your attention.

The symptom of "adding words to a dict" is just the tip of the iceberg. :-)
See issue 95628 ("UserLayer location defaults to boot drive if username contains
non ansi characters") for details.
