Spell Checker

It seems there is something wrong with the spell checker.
Although I placed ...


... into mysite/_config.php the TinyMCE UI is English and the spell checker checks for English grammar. But the little ABC icon shows me after a click "German (Germany)". Anyway it uses the English grammar and makes almost every word red underlined.

How can I change that?

It's not TinyMCE what's wrong but SS.
I wrote in cms/code/CMSMain.php:

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('spellchecker_languages', "+Deutsch=de");

... and it works fine. So these two lines don't do their job

$langName = i18n::get_locale_name($this->Locale);
HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('spellchecker_languages', "+{$langName}={$this->Locale}");

Maybe a bug? Should I open a new ticket?

If i18n::set_locale('de_DE'); sets its value to de_DE how does this work with the HtmlEditorConfig what needs Deutsch=de?
