UberWriter (moved to github!)

Bug Description

I am trying out the PPA version of UberWriter on a clean installation of Linux Mint (Cinnamon). When opening Uberwriter from the main menu, or calling the binary directly while visiting the home directory, a binary file "pickled_dict" is generated. This appears to be a pickled English dictionary, but I have not looked closer - thou shalt not unpickle strange files!

Especially curious is that when I grep the source code, I see that this file is opened as write-only in two places (uberwriter_lib/gtkspellcheck/spellcheck.py and uberwriter/uberwriter/UberwriterAutoCorrect.py) but is not opened for reading by any python files? Is it read in by some C library?
