I personally don't mind recompiling software, which probably puts me
into some minority allready. However, in this case I would have no idea
where such a change should be made. :-)

I have just looked at the cont-en.log on my teTeX 3.0 system. There it
contained hyphenation patterns for 10 languages. I don't know if more
recent versions contain more patterns. In the case I cited the problem
occured at the 40. pattern or so.

That sounds like a ensible idea.
