Good thinking.
There was was no difference with my other user account, but that may very
well have the same settings and the same problem as the other account.
So I set up a new user account, a test-account, in which LO would have
default settings. And behold, AutoSpellcheck works for Dutch language!
But why not in the other accounts?

" What does LO 3.5 have as the Default language?"
" Check Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages > Font "
That's Nederlands (Dutch) (so that should be OK).

Dutch dictionary installed?"
Ah! It does not! Very good thinking!
How can this be? How did it lose that Dutch dictionary installation?
There's still a "Nederlands spelling woordenboek en woordafbrekingsregels
2.0.0" (Dutch spelling dictionary and hyphenation rules) extension in
Extension Manager, just like in the LO-installation with the default
settings in the test-account that I mentioned.
Where should I look for a 'lost' Dutch dictionary?
How can I repair its installation in my regular accounts?

Dutch is missing as an option for Text language in Spelling and Grammar!
Check spelling as you type is selected.

Dutch not having the check and ABC in front of it seems to be the problem,
as Dan pointed out.
I guess the fact that Dutch is missing as an option for Text language in
Spelling and Grammar is a result of that?

So, again:
Where should I look for the 'lost' Dutch dictionary?
How can I repair its installation in my two regular accounts?
And also quite interesting: Why was the Dutch dictionary lost in LO in my
two regular accounts? What happened with the upgrade to LibO 3.5.0?
