Hmm, you're lucky to have your language somewhat supported.  Ours isn't,
at all, so I've killed the spell checking.  However, for a change,
something about this is actually documented in the Evolution help file:

"To choose a spell-checking language, select it here. You must install
the gnome-spell package, available through ZENworks® Linux Management,
for spell-checking to be available in Evolution. Additional dictionaries
are also available through Red Carpet® and are detected automatically if
you have installed them. To have the composer automatically check your
spelling while you type, select Check Spelling While I Type."

Good luck finding anything to sort out your problems, though.  I've
never managed to find much of any use from Novell's website (that's
where Red Carpet and ZENworks live).

Suggests that aspell is used with it, as well.
