Well, I had the liberty to change the source ;)

src/TWUtils.cpp:85:                     libPath = "/usr/share/myspell/dicts";

But it would've been nice to have it in the preferences (is it on a
todo list?) or atleast read it in from the DICPATH environment
variable (used by hunspell) during qmake.

So, all in all, a happy camper now!
