Package: vim-runtime
Version: 2:7.3.547-7
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

please update the included English spell files. They are not
compatible with spell files which vim automatically downloads
from ftp.vim.org:

  :set spelllang en,de
  :set spell
  Cannot find spell file for "de" in utf-8
  Do you want me to try downloading it?
  Downloading de.utf-8.spl...
  "/tmp/vjEMsg7/0.spl" [noeol] 5996L, 2388148C
  In which directory do you want to write the file:
  1. /home/uwe/.vim/spell
  "~/.vim/spell/de.utf-8.spl" [New] 5996L, 2388149C written
  Do you want me to try getting the .sug file?
  This will improve making suggestions for spelling mistakes,
  but it uses quite a bit of memory.
  Downloading de.utf-8.sug...
  "~/.vim/spell/de.utf-8.sug" [New] 19573L, 7989987C written
  1 buffer wiped out
  Error detected while processing /home/uwe/.vim/spell/de.utf-8.spl:
  E763: Word characters differ between spell files

After that download the error message reappears every time I
activate spell checking.

When I manually download the current English spell files from
http://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/runtime/spell/ and copy them to
/home/uwe/.vim/spell spell checking works as expected without
any error messages.
