There's a new thread on Classics-l about this variant spelling of "dilemma":

http://lsv.uky.edu/scripts/wa.exe?A1=ind0510e&L=classics-l (s.v.)

which I don't recall ever seeing before and quite surprised to find
returns 265K Google web hits. A few of those are for personal names (or
_noms de plume_), but almost all of the first 100 are used where one
would expect "dilemma". Google groups finds almost 35K uses, going back
to early 1983 (i.e., not far from the beginning of their archives).
