      One solution that I haven't tested but that may work around this problem is
      to split your large .udt file into several smaller ones. The spell checker
      supports multiple user dictionaries.

      I do believe the issue no longer exists in the latest version of the spell
      checker. I haven't used that version in NoteTab yet due to issues with some
      foreign dictionaries. The developer of the spell checker is working on
      those issues...
