Some time ago, I've send you a message about the problem of using
flyspell mode and jed's ispell mode. Here's the quote:

  John E. Davis changed lib/ispell.sl of jed to use Ispell_Program_Name.
  This happend in version 0.99.19pre177. His adaption of the
  Ispell_Program_Name variable is incompatible to your usage in
  ispell_init. John puts in this variable the whole command, e.g.
  ispell -a, what doesn't work with your usage of this variable.

You wanted to ask John about his opinion. Did you've got an answer?
Could you fix the problem?

Regards, Jörg.
