Hmm, hard to tell what could be the reason.

A couple of questions that might help:

May sound like a dumb question, but: Did you install the Intel  
version? (cocoAspell.2.0.4.i86.dmg, not cocoAspell.2.0.4.ppc.dmg)
If you didn't, you will have to remove the receipts again before re- 

In the installer: Are packges greyed out when you click "Cusomize"  
during the installation?
If they are: Are there any other receipts, for example in ~/Library/ 
Receipts/ ?

Does spellchecking work in any application, like TextEdit?
Does it work if the app is re-started after the correct language is  

Does it work with any other CocoAspell dictionary? Which dictionary  
are you using?

I very much hope this is of any use -- I am not a specialist in this  
matters, I found the receipts problem more or less by chance when I  
had the problem :-)
