I don't think there should be anything else... My guess is that this has 
something to do with the speller options. Try running "voikkospell -s 
ignore_dot=1" and see if that breaks suggestions.

I have LibreOffice build environment set up here so I might be able to add 
Komi locale data and submit it upstream quite easily. Unless you are already 
working on it I'll have a look at it next week.
