LibO on XP

GUI is English (US). My default language is English (US) additional languages and dictionaries are installed for German, Japanese and Dutch. Opening Tools > Manage extensions show that the dictionaries are installed.

In Writer dictionaries. language selections work perfectly fine.

In Calc I the get red wavy lines beneath misspelled English words. When I right click on these words the context menu does not show any correct version(s) in a file created originally in a maybe 4.0 or version of LibO. In a file created in v right clicking on the misspelled word shows potentially correct words in English, but not in German or Dutch.

In non of the files I can set the language to English, Japanese, German or Dutch. Opening Tools > Languages shows me only a selection between Hangul/Hanja conversion (=Korean) and Chinese conversion. Non of these languages is installed.

Do I miss a setting or do we have a bug?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I did'nt find a bug related to your question. But I also have some weird behavior in Calc. The red wiggly line do NOT appear even with misspelled words. If I run a full spellcheck then they show up. May be there is a bug in there.

EDIT: Works fine with a virgin user profile.

@horst - Thanks. I solved a part of the problem and shorted start-up time of LibO all lot. Nice side effect. What remains is that I 1.) cannot select any other language the way I can do in Writer and 2.) still get the selection between Hangul/Hanja conversion (=Korean) and Chinese conversion with non of these languages installed. --- Is this one now a bug???
