 Clean install on Win7:

 Pidgin is works. But I need spell check, additional spell-check directory
 download is failed under install. I read in ticket, this is known problem.
 I read this:

 Okay. I downloaded this:
 Atfer copy to *.dic and *.aff files to
 ...\Pidgin\spellcheck\share\enchant\myspell directory.

 I want start Pidgin, tray icon is appear, after few seconds is disappear,
 Pidgin is halted (closed).
 Only help for me, if I delete spell-check dic/aiff files, after Pidgin is
 started normally.

 But interesting, because if I downloaded other dictionary, example Czech
 Pidgin is started normally, but... spell checking is none, don't works.

 If I downloaded old hungary dictionary (from year 2007) Pidgin is started,
 and spell checking is works.

 Summarizing: possible Pidgin don't works with "new" dictionary files on
