This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I start Emacs 21.1 with emacs -q, and set ispell-complete-word-dict
to my own wordlist, I have the following strange effect:

(setq ispell-complete-word-dict "/home/alex/.ispell_swiss_wordlist")

"Bew" gives me a long list of completions.
"Bewe" says "No match for ..."
"Bewei" gives me a long list of completions.

I then tried to narrow it down and found the following:

Assume the following word-list in a file, and set
ispell-complete-word-dict accordingly.


"Bew" gives a list of completions,
"Bewe" gives a list of completions (the correct one).

Now remove one of the words:


"Bew" gives a list of completions,
"Bewe" gives "No match for ..."

I then tried to use the command line to see wether the sorting of the
file or the Umlauts were a problem:

~$ which look
~$ look Bew ispell-test
~$ look Bewe ispell-test
~$ look -f Bew ispell-test
~$ look -f Bewe ispell-test

It seems that using no options, both lookups should fail, or if the -f
option is used, both lookups should succeed (as I expect them to).

Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death and sweet as love.
