yeah the missing dictionary was the culprit (i really should have spotted that 

Quanta works fine with aspell.

As to my other question about kmail's address dialog, i have recompiled kdepim 
but i'm still seeing the same problem (dialog so tall you can't confirm your 
address selection because the button is off the bottom of the screen). I 
can't find a .ui file related to that dialog so it looks like its code 
generated. I don't know whats causing it and no bugs have been filed relating 
to it.

I'll dig a little deeper and see if i can fix it.

Thanks for the great help.
