Since upgrading evolution to 3.16.5 from 3.12.11 it is missing the squiggly underline on misspelled words. The spell checker itself is working fine: I can right click on a misspelled word and select the corrected word from the list. Enchant is installed, with Hunspell and appropriate dictionaries. I've also enabled the option and dictionary under Composer Preferences.
My guess is it is something to do with the migration from gtkhtml to webkit-gtk for the composer window, but don't see any obvious missing use flags on webkit-gtk and its dependencies.
Anyone seeing the same issue or has an idea what the problem could be?
Thanks in advance,
EDIT: Fixed it by recompiling the entire dependency tree of Evolution. I'm assuming it was something with webkit-gtk...
