spelling does not work

orthography/spelling seems not to work in kmail editor version 5.33. Whenever I select "German", it turns to "Abkhazian", a language, I never heard of. See attached pic.

This occurs for me too:

 - Under Settings->Configure KMail->Identities
 - edit an identitiy
 - go to "Advanced" tab
 - The "Autocorrection lanuage" field shows "Abkhazian".
 - Change to "English"
 - Click "OK"

Returning back to the same setting, the field has reverted to "Abkhazian".

KMail 5.43.3 from Fedora 25 packages.

I confirm that it's buggy.
I will investigate it.
Comment 3 resplin 2017-12-07 22:50:41 UTC
I see the same behavior:
Fedora 27
KMail 5.6.3

I suspect it is selecting Abkhazian because it is the first in the list. I find it strange that languages appear for which I don't have any dictionaries installed.
Comment 4 resplin 2017-12-07 23:28:11 UTC
The setting appears to stick now.

I installed langpacks-en

I then went to System Settings -> Region -> Language and selected English as my preferred language.

I then went to System Settings -> Region -> Spell Check and selected American English as my standard language.

The setting in KMail's identity configuration now appears to stick.

However, automatic spell check is still not happening.
