IT seems that the "breaking dictionary" is mostly a Windows thing, if
what I read is correct.
It is to be that my KPP [Kracked Press Productions] dictionaries would
work and not "break". As far as I understand, this issue is a somewhat
hit or miss for people. You could have one system work fine but a
different system, same make/model/OS/etc., will not work properly. Why
it happens is the key to figure out a fix for it.
Sometimes I wonder if there is something in the "default" English
dictionary is the issue. I took a "non-English" dictionary that was not
working for someone and un-archive it and open the parts into a text
editor, then re-archive it. Then the person who had the problems with
the original one stated it worked fine now. So, there could be
something that "creeps into" the file/install somehow, somewhere, that
triggers something for only a few users.
I have never heard of the Spell checking "breaking" in the Ubuntu
installs, but someone could have had it happen.
I did my best to make sure my KPP dictionaries worked as well as
possible. I hope to update them one day. I lost some of my work during
one of my sick weeks and a "ooops I deleted the wrong folder" issue. I
had my 638,000 spelling word list over 700,000 words. I even had one
that was over 1,000,000 words, with most of the new words being
not-popular-but-valid-spelling words. I hope to get back to this in the
near future. The American English largest list is 638,644 words, and
the British list is 638,285 words.

So it's now version 188.8.131.52 and the problem still exists. As well, I
installed the KPP dictionaries in the extension manager and had spell
checking for a while, and then their installation eventually "broke", too.
Unlike the default English dictionaries, however, I can promptly re-install
the KPP dictionaries and get my spell checker back, for a while anyway.
If someone could look into these magical breaking dictionary extensions,
well, you'd have no idea how grateful I'd be!
