[OS X TeX] aspell under new carbon emacs for tiger

I have just upgraded to tiger and the new carbon emacs that works  
with it. Things are great save for spell checking. I have the  
following lines in my .emacs, which let me check spelling under  
panther flawlessly, but no longer. The cocoAspell program is in the  
same location in tiger, but I must need to change something else,  
because running any of the spelling commands gives the error message:

    Invalid version syntax: '.33.7.1 alpha'

and it doesn't mark misspellings on the fly (like it did with Panther)

Lines from my .emacs:

(setq ispell-program-name
cocoAspell")   ;;use aspell

(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'flyspell-mode)  ;;spell check as we go

(define-key global-map "\C-cd" 'ispell-word)  ;;to fix flagged word
(define-key global-map "\C-cf" 'ispell-complete-word)  ;;suggest  
correctly-spelled completions

;(define-key global-map [f7] 'ispell-region)
