That's not what I see here.  When en_US is used, neither of these is
flagged as a mis-spelling.  When I switch to en_GB, only "etc" and the
"i" in "i.e." are flagged, the rest (including all of "e.g.") are not.

I guess the reason is the different versions of Hunspell dictionaries
we have installed.

Once again, I don't think this is an Emacs problem.  Don't you see the
same when you invoke Hunspell as a stand-alone program?

$ cat Downloads/foo.txt
i.e. this is not e.g. etc. help!
​ foxb​

$ hunspell -a -d en_GB -i UTF-8 ~/Downloads/foo.txt
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.2.06 (but really Hunspell 1.3.3)
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
& foxb 6 33: fox, fob, foxy, fox b, fixable, faux

​Here we see that hunspell doesn't like "foxb" (great!) but is otherwise happy.

So the problem does not appear to be with hunspell.
