Bugfix : gedit bad flag vector alias bug #583911

In case u get the following error in a continuous loop in gedit (version :2.30.2) in ubuntu 10.04 LTS

error: line 20234: bad flag vector alias
error: line 20243: bad flag alias index: 0

while opening any file in gedit , heres the bugfix for it.

This error is possibly due to myspell-en-za , a south african english dictionary.
Try uninstalling it :
synaptic manager ->myspell-en-za->uninstall
or
$sudo aptitude remove myspell-en-za (command line)

& yes, this fixes the bug .
