I conjecture that there was a configuration file left over from your previous installation of aspell, if there was one in addition to the one Apple provides. I tried once to have the same dictionaries for aspell and Cocoaspell, but I could bit get the two to work together, or even to coexist side by side. Cocoaspell installs and configures its own configuration file, which will take precedence over any other.
Anyhow, it's good that this problem was solved, even if it's not clear how.
