Not that I'm maintaining those dictionaries, but why is it incorrect,
in your opinion?  It clearly produces the desirable effect, doesn't it?

​No, it produces the undesirable effect of treating "etc" as a correct spelling.​

Does this mean that your problem is solved, and we can close this bug?
Or does something still need to be fixed in Emacs?

​Sorry, I must have been unclear. I still have the original problem: without the workaround of adding incorrect spellings to my personal wordlist, "i.e." and "e.g." are marked as wrong in en_GB. I just double checked this with the following recipe:

1. Rename my ~/.hunspell_en_GB.

2. Start "emacs -Q"

3. M-x flyspell-mode RET

4. M-x customize-variable RET ispell-program-name RET; set to "/usr/bin/hunspell" (doing this after step 3 because the variable is not available for customization before loading ispell)

5. Type "etc. i.e. e.g."

All of the above is now red-underwiggled.
