I'm finding Hunspell and Ispell are not very good at offering alternative suggestions for misspelled words in the English (American) dictionary. I am certain I have the latest dictionaries installed. Has anybody had any alternative experiences that they might share?

Hunspell is the spell checker of LibreOffice, OpenOffice.org and Mozilla Firefox 3 & Thunderbird, Google Chrome, and it is also used by proprietary softwares, like Mac OS X, memoQ, Opera and SDL Trados.
Hunspell is based on MySpell and originally developed for the Hungarian language. Type in "trubble" and see what you get. My current installed English library returns two options: "rubble" "t rubble" In OpenOffice it is working differently, returning these two at the top and then a bunch of extras. So I copied the libraries from OO into my dictionary path for enchant and cycled through them and still received the same results. PHP 5.4.1 is released in two days, I'll see if that fixes anything.
