accept-process-output should return non-nil value

I maybe wrong in understanding the documentation, but assuming I run the following with a very recent "emacs -q" :

(setq ispell-process
      (apply 'start-process
             "ispell" nil
            '("-d" "en_US" "-i" "UTF-8")))

(accept-process-output ispell-process 3)

The accept-process-output function should return a non-nil value, because hunspell has output its banner (confirmed by associating a buffer to the process). However I can't get it to report anything but nil, and this both under Gnu/Linux and W32.

It doesn't work either if I set up a simple process filter.

Can someone enlighten me ?

Best regards,
