No problem, I was using stuff from a previous message in the bug thread
without noticing that precat was missing there. After putting all
aspell-ru stuff in a dir and hacking the aff file as described in my
previous mail and the wordlist to remove "138420",

$ LANG=C zcat ru.cwl.gz | precat | aspell --dont-validate-affixes \
--local-data-dir=./  --lang=ru create master ./ru.rws

builds the hash. Keeping the original 'ru.cwl.gz' also works, but with the

  Warning: The word "138420" is invalid. The character '1' (U+31) may not
  appear at the beginning of a word. Skipping word.

whose fix is described in #386577.
