This is not a bug but a wishlist entry.

I'm using emacs for most of my text editing, and write text both in
English and in Norwegian.  I sometimes work on these texts in
parallel, and would like to use the English ispell dictionary in the
buffer where I edit the English text, and the Norwegian dictionary in
the buffer where I edit the Norwegian text.  When I use M-x
ispell-change-dictionary I change the dictionary for all buffers.
This is no good as I need to change the dictionary every time I start
to write the "other" language.  I want to set the dictionary on a per
buffer basis.  Is this possible?  If not, could someone please
implement it?

(I normally use the flyspell package for spell checking, and the it is
thus fairly annoying when I use the "wrong" dictionary. :-)


BTW: You did good work with the new Emacs.  I was surprised and very
  pleased to discover that gnus now handled UTF incoming-8 email
  without problems.
