Description:
------------
OS: Debian GNU/Linux
PHP version: 4.4.4
Aspell version: 0.60.4

Using pspell_check returns incorrect results for some words. For example, it marks spellling and permanate are being spelt correctly, and online as being spelt incorrectly

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php

// Code from http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=125497.msg802209#msg802209

$pspell_link = pspell_new('en', 'american', '', 'UTF-8', PSPELL_FAST | PSPELL_RUN_TOGETHER);
$tests = array(
	'spel',
	'spell',
	'spelll',
	'speling',
	'spelling',
	'spellling',
);

foreach ($tests as $test)
	echo $test, '->', pspell_check($pspell_link, $test) ? 'correct' : 'incorrect', '<br />';

?>

Expected result:
----------------
spel->incorrect
spell->correct
spelll->incorrect
speling->incorrect
spelling->correct
spellling->incorrect

Actual result:
--------------
spel->incorrect
spell->correct
spelll->incorrect
speling->incorrect
spelling->correct
spellling->correct

(notice the last result)

Additionally, checking it through the Aspell executable has correct results:
==========
root@server1:/home/daniel# cat test_words
spel
spell
spelll
speling
spelling
spellling

root@server1:/home/daniel# cat test_words | aspell list
spel
spelll
speling
spellling
root@server1:/home/daniel# aspell -v
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell 0.60.4)

There is nothing we can do about it as long as pspell/aspell C api returns "1" (which means "correct").
Not PHP problem.
