 Replying to [comment:7 datallah]:
 > There are a number of issues with your assumptions.
 > Firstly, we just run an external installer, so we don't know where the
 version installed through our installer (if there is one) actually goes;
 we use a registry lookup to try to find the right Aspell path - the php
 installer appears to be rudely updating said registry key to point to
 their incompatible version.
 > The aspell dll doesn't contain versioning
 [http://treatmentofmesothelioma.org/mesothelioma.html mesothelioma]
 information (even if it did, the php version appears to be the same
 version based on the dll naming).
 > Sure, we could add some ugly hacks to try to recognize a specific binary
 and such, but the fundamental problem is that php is replacing the
 standard aspell dll with an incompatible one and screwing up the registry
 > Please file a ticket with the php distribution you're using.
 Thank you for your answer datallah
