Patch attached.

One issue remains, which is specific to the ooovoikko extension: I do not get any suggestions. The following word produces the following output in voikkospell:

W: Кальӧлöн
S: Кальӧлӧн
S: Вальӧлӧн
S: Дальӧлӧн
S: Кальӧн
S: Бальӧлӧн

(the first suggestion is the expected correction)

The same word produces no suggestions in LibreOffice, but is flagged as a misspelling. The same words are accepted & rejected in voikkospell and ooovoikko/LibreOffice. The strange thing is that earlier versions of the speller + ooovoikko extension (based on voikko code from last fall and subsequently did not accept upper-cased words) did offer suggestions for (lexical cased) misspellings.

Is there anything more that needs to be done to make sure we get suggestions?

The speller is a very early version of a Komi speller. In OOo it is disguised as Ukrainian, since Komi presently is not supported by OOo/LibreO.
