flyspell-mode became incredibly slow

XEmacs 21.5.21, Sumo packages from 20050505.
I often use 'flyspell-mode' and noticed that it has become
incredibly slow recently.
While typing using flyspell mode, I see the message
"Starting new Ispell process..."
almost all the time. It looks like a new ispell process is started
after every letter I type. No wonder this is slow.
while true; do clear;ps aux | grep ispell; sleep 1;done
I see that the process id of ispell changes after each letter I type.
XEmacs 21.4.15 with the Sumo packages from 20040202 apparently used
only one ispell process, with the above "while" loop I always see the
same process id of ispell while using flyspell.
