Wow, that worked.

So, is there no way I can change my Locale within Emacs prior to loading ispell?

Copy en_US.* files into corresponding ENU.* files, and your problem is
likely to go away.

Yes, but that shouldn't be necessary if you configure Hunspell for
your locale (which is ENU, a.k.a. "en_US").
