Hmm, it sounds like there's still encoding issue.

I added both 'définition' and 'Définition' (in UTF-8) to my user
dictionary and neither show up as misspelled in a buffer. I then appended
an 'a' to 'définition' (to make 'définitiona'). That showed up as
misspelled, so I triggered suggestions and replaced with 'Définition'.
Still no misspelling.
