flyspell interferes with C-c C-c (mail mode, vc-log-mode, etc)

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.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.2 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of Fri Apr  5 2002 on cyberhq modified by Debian
configured using `configure  i386-debian-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr 
--sharedstatedir=/var/lib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var/lib 
--infodir=/usr/share/info --mandir=/usr/share/man --with-pop=yes --with-x=yes 

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

It seems that the keystroke C-c C-c is intercepted and discarded when
Flyspell is active and the token under the text cursor is misspelled
(for flyspell's definition of misspelled).

Repro steps:

 1. Activate flyspell so that it kicks in whenever you enter text
    mode. This I believe is the default action when you enable
    flyspell according to the basic instructions that come with it.

 2. Enter a mode which is derived from text mode, and where C-c C-c is
    used for something.

 3. Type in some text, and make sure the last word is misspelled.
    Leave the cursor just after the word in question (haven't tried
    what happens if I hit Enter before C-c C-c).

 4. Press C-c C-c

Actual result:

    A friendly beep.

Expected result:

    Whatever C-c C-c is supposed to accomplish. In mail mode, send mail.
    In vc-log-mode, submit the log entry and check in the file.


    Step #2 can probably be generalized to cover modes not derived
    from text mode, and possibly other keystrokes in the C-c prefix

    Writing in a language other than English is a nice use case in
    step #3. (I haven't gotten around to figure out how to make
    Flyspell read my mind to know in what language I am going to type
    before I even know it myself.)

    For testing things without generating undesirable side effects,
    placing the cursor in various places in the text buffer and
    pressing C-h k C-c C-c is probably to be preferred. When the
    cursor is on top of a "misspelled" and thus colorized token, you
    get "C-c C-c is undefined" instead of the regular description for
    the keystroke sequence.

Sorry if this is fixed in a newer version of Emacs and/or Flyspell.
I'm on a production system so I'm running Debian stable and nothing
else here.
