[OS X Emacs] How to get flyspell to check spelling as I type?

In my LaTeX-mode-hook, I have (flyspell-mode 1).  And for some reason, I have

    (turn-on-flyspell smart-spacing-mode auto-detect-wrap)))

as one of my custom-set-variables in customizations.el.  Maybe one or both of those will help.

When I type text in Aquamacs (3.5), the mode line identifies modes “LaTeX/FPS Fly (Default) BCite Ref Abbrev Fill”, but typing things that shouldn’t appear in the default dictionary (“en”) almost never results in a flag (underlining). Frustratingly, this does very occasionally happen, but I have no idea of what’s going on.
