Hunspell 1.3.2 appears to have issues parsing some contractions even though they're in the dictionary.

---------
[root@letni /]# egrep "wouldn't|can't" en_US.dic
can't
wouldn't
[root@letni /]# echo "can't"|hunspell
Hunspell 1.3.2
*

[root@letni /]# echo "wouldn't"|hunspell
Hunspell 1.3.2
& wouldn 3 0: would, woulds, would n
*

[root@letni /]#

    I believe this is a dictionary issue, as per: http://forums.textcontrol.com/archive/index.php/t-325288.html

    It's strange, as the dictionary included in Arch (or the "tx_spell_dictionary_1.en_US" dictionary in the mentioned zip file) has the words, it just doesn't work correctly. The recommended dictionary in the link "tx_spell_dictionary_2.en_US" does however work.
