That's because the German dictionary is defined to be in iso8859-1 
encoding, so Emacs tries to encode Latin-9 characters into iso8859-1.  
This cannot be done, in general, so Emacs uses ISO-2022 escape sequences, 
and the ispell program does not understand that.

I will try to come up with some solution, but could you please check 
again on GNU/Linux?  You said in your report that it worked there, which 
sounds impossible, since there's nothing Windows-specific in what I 
described above.  Are you sure the GNU/Linux machine has the same 
dictionary and the same Ispell configuration?  Perhaps some site-wide 
startup file changes something?
