Then I cannot reproduce this, it works for me, ispell.el (using
Hunspell as the speller) says "I'VE is correct".  I guess your
dictionary has a problem or something.  Or maybe you set up
spell-checking incorrectly (try in "emacs -Q").  There should be no
need to use ICONV at all.

I see no problem in Emacs using Hunspell.
