They are independent, dictionaries-common ispell.el should be
first in the load-path unless specifically disabled, and 
emacs21.3 ispell.el will rarely be used in normal setups. As a matter
of fact emacs 21.3 seems to still ship with ispell.el 3.4, while
dictionaries-common one is 3.6 with some patches to help integration of
dicts and some bug fixes and improvements taken from both emacs and
xemacs CVS.

I have retested your patch and my workaround with a good ifrench dict
(it was indeed buggy), and both give reasonable results for
iso-8859-{1,15} dict/buffer combinations, with some of the expected
misalignments due to iso-8859-15 chars, but your patch does the good
work for an utf-8 buffer with iso-8859-15 only chars and an
iso-8859-15 dict emacs entry, while my workaround does nothing there.

I suggest you to install your patch for CVS Emacs, so it can have a wider

I will try to adapt both systems for use in dictionaries-common ispell.el,
with your patch as primary choice and the workaround as a fallback.

Again, thanks a lot for your feedback (and to emacs-devel people and Rob,
debian emacs21 maintainer, for their patience with this rather long thread)
