Spell checking occasionally stops working
I've noticed that from time to time spell checking will just stop working. To fix it I'll go into settings, uncheck the option, apply, recheck and hit OK. Then it's working again.
There doesn't seem to be any particular event that causes it, and it's difficult to tell anyway since you don't generally notice it gone immediately. It's only when the red wiggly line doesn't appear on a word you know you've spelt incorrectly that you know it's no longer operating.

Affects me too. It usually happens when I type in another language and thus there are a lot of errors. KTextEdit has an automatic mode which deactivates the Highlighter when too many errors were found.
I think the best solution is to simply reset it when the Channel is switched (?or the input is send?). I wrote a small patch to do that.

Update: My patch is not working correctly!
I created a new patch in this merge request: http://gitorious.org/quassel/quassel/merge_requests/45
