Thanks for this release - it feels even faster ;-)

It still does not work with enchant 1.5.0 though - if you use enchant in the
latest version, you can't compose or reply to messages. 

I found some patch on the japanese mailinglist - could't get it to work
though since my japanese is a little rusty :o) - downgrading enchant to v.
1.4.2 still solves the problem though.

best regards
