Today's update to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b4pre) Gecko/20100811 Minefield/4.0b4pre appears to ahve broken spell checking.

While the option for automatically checking spelling as I type is enabled, when I am entering text into a forum where it has worked for the last *year* it is not working unless I maually enalbe it - and I have to manually enable ti for each post I make now.  It was worknig just 2 hours ago, prior to me updating minefield.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Update to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b4pre) Gecko/20100811 Minefield/4.0b4pre
2.  Verify that Options --> Advanced --> General --> Check my spelling as I type is enabled
3.  Attempt to type into any text box (***EVEN THIS ONE***) and spell checking is not enabled, until you manually enable it in the context menu
Actual Results:  
Any text box that I type in spell checking is disabled until I manually enable it via the context menu.  It is happening on a per item level, meaning if I have to type i 3 different textboxes, I have to enable it three different times.

Expected Results:  
Spell checking should be enabled by default on all textboxes per the options menu setting.

As I mentioned, this just started with this latest build.

I double checked to make sure it was not my profile by creating a brand new profile as well.

Also, since it was happening right here as I was typing the bug out (as is evidenced by my original description, which is not spell-checked) I think this is a build specific issue that should (hopefully) go away with the next build).
