I don't think it's a problem. If you use flyspell with John's ispell, you
can fix this by setting the variable in your .jedrc (flyspell should work
with a "-a" option).

Anyway, I think the "-a" option should not be in the variable. Emacs' ispell
mode has had an ispell-program-name without " -a" for at least 13 years, and
my version has used it for 7 years. Users who have customized it and switch
to jed's ispell will have problems.
