[Users] Spell Checking in Claws Mail

I have a major problem with spell checking within Claws Mail.
I've asked in the freenode #claws channel on IRC but
have been unable to get it working properly. I have spell checking
configured properly in Configuration/Preferences/Compose/Spell
Checking, with the coloured box set to 'red'. But, I don’t see any
colours at all in claws mail, its purely monochromatic. I have all
boxes ticked in the spell checking configuration page, with 'en-ca'
being my alternative dictionary, but I still don’t have any visible way
of seeing misspelled words. 

Well, spell checking manually of each "next misspelt word" is working
in 'en-GB', just I don’t see any coloured, misspelt words, nor squiggly
lines underneath misspellings, I'm using  Claws Mail 3.9.0 (GTK+
2.24.10; i486-pc-linux-gnu).

Can anyone advise me please as to how to get it visibly working?
