First I set System Preferences->Languages & Text->Text->Spelling: to English(Aspell) rather than Automatic; I set the CocoAspell dictionary to English; that might have been it. If I had to re-install, I don't remember, it is very important to clean out all the files associated with CocoAspell in ~/Library/... and /Library/... as well as the preference pane.

I realised what happened: I am trying to use CocoAspell with aspell from MacPorts.
It worked perfectly in SnowLeopard, but not in Lion :-(
If I install the unmodified version of CocoAspell, it does work in Lion.
