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

I'm not sure if this is an emacs bug or a badly configured ispell. My ispell configuration is:

(setq-default ispell-program-name "aspell")
;;(setq-default ispell-program-name "ispell")
(setq ispell-dictionary "castellano")
(setq ispell-complete-word-dict "/usr/share/dict/spanish")

Ispell/Aspell checks spelling in words with accentuated chars correctly. My problem is related to ispell-complete-word and flyspell. Flyspell/Aspell doesn't recognizes accentuated chars. If I have the word "drástico" and call ispell-complete-word , then It uses "stico" as "search string". That occurs without mattering where the accentuated
vowel is inside the word.

In Latin-9, á is \341, which is in both the CASECHARS and NOT-CASECHARS
regexps of the "castellano" entry in ispell-dictionary-alist.  But the
call to (ispell-get-word nil "\\*") fails here to find the beginning of
the word and stops at the accented character:

    ;; move to front of word
    (re-search-backward ispell-not-casechars (point-min) 'start)

However, I can get it to work by making ispell-decode-string a no-op:

(defun ispell-decode-string (str) str)
