I have multiple dictionaries installed.  Hunspell finds all of them, but
selects *two* of them.  According to the man page, that is done
according to LC_ALL, LC_MESSAGES, and LANG environment variables.

What are the values of those environment variables?

$ locale

Honestly, I don't know where it takes the cs_CZ from, *but* if it
didn't, I would have to modify it so that it does.  Simply because
that's what I want it to do by default.

Becuase hunspell selects more of them (which is something I want it to
do), it lists both of them as "LOADED DICTIONARY", ispell parses those
(actually just lines ending with ".aff") and if it finds more than one,
it errors out.

The way to run Hunspell with more than one dictionary is hinted upon
in the doc string of the command ispell-hunspell-add-multi-dic.  After

If I try

 M-x ispell-change-dictionary RET en_GB,cs_CZ RET

I get the same error.

you invoke that command and specify the dictionaries you want to use
(e.g., in your case "en_GB,cs_CZ"), type this:

 M-x ispell-change-dictionary RET en_GB,cs_CZ RET

M-x ispell-change-dictionary RET errors out with the same error.  If I
run it again, there are no dictionaries loaded, so I cannot use any
parameter for it except 'default'.

Then try spell-checking.  It should work with that arrangement.  It is
possible that you will first need to modify your environment variables
to prevent Hunspell from loading more than one dictionary by default.

Why would I need to do that?  For me hunspell is working as I want it
to, exactly.

I honestly think that ispell should accept multiple dictionaries and
either behave like a multi-dic by default or just not error out when it
parses the second dictionary (less favourable option, though).  I would
love to add that functionality, but I'm not that familiar with the code,
unfortunately =(
