I was wrong. In fact my utf8 dictionary ('fr_utf8.aff' and 'fr_utf8.dic' in '~/.textadept/dictionaries')
was not used by the Textadept spell checker,
the default system 'fr.dic' (encoded in ISO Latin 1) in '/usr/share/hunspell' was used instead.
If I replace the isolatin1 by the utf8 one, then everything works fine.
It means that it is better to use an utf8 dictionary (even if with other programs everything is ok with isolatin dictionary).

Sorry for the noise.
