Aloha all,

I'm running into a problem with running a new install of aspell in  
Aquamacs.  I installed the macports aspell and the english dictionary,  
per the instructions in the Aquamacs Wiki.  aspell can be called from  
the command line and it recognizes that its English dictionary is  
available.  I restarted Aquamacs, per the instructions in the wiki,  
opened a LaTeX document and ran Spell from the Command menu.  The mode  
line says "Continuing spelling check using aspell with default  
dictionary..." and nothing happens.  top shows Aquamacs Emacs using  
99.9% of CPU time. I have to Force Quit because Aquamacs no longer  
accepts keyboard input.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
