When "check spelling as you type" option is enabled, words that are not spelled correctly are no longer identified by red underline. No visual notice of incorrectly spelled words is given. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest nightly
2. Compose new message
3. Enter incorrectly spelled words
Actual Results:  
Compose window does not mark text with red underlines

Expected Results:  
Misspelled words should be flagged with red underlines

Words that are misspelled are still caught by Mail if spell check is invoked upon send, so program is apparently catching them, just not flagging them while typing.

Underline is working again in latest nightly.
