Hello @ll,
as I was searching Bugzilla, I stumbled upon 
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51585 and tried to 
reproduce it. When I open
a. Writer
b. click F7 without entering any text to spellcheck,
I can confirm this bug with LO Version (Build ID: 
7168152d13aa529ba3718c9ae3700216a574137) and installed Germanophone 
lang- as well as helppack under Debian Testing AMD64. But if I do 
this w/ LO Version: Build ID: 
40b2d7fde7e8d2d7bc5a449dc65df4d08a7dd38 on this same system, I 
cannot confirm it ... :( So ... Were there some changes either in 
the spellchecker itself or in its UI, which leads to this 
difference? Can someone explain it to me as a non-programmer? And 
can someone else confirm this bug, please?
