Great to hear that you managed to find a fix! I'm not yet sure if removing 
type=native is a safe thing to do for all platforms (it seems very strange) so 
I will not remove it from the official sources. But you can of course use that 
fix where it helps. I will now build a new version on Windows and if it seems 
to work I will publish a new release candidate.

Do you need a new hfst-ospell for Windows? The latest I have built is from 
revision 3659 and it has worked fine for me. But if you know that there are 
important fixes in later versions I can build a new one.
