I got in pdfTeX (pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.30.4-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.5), kpathsea  
version 3.5.5) and XeTeX (XeTeX 3.141592-0.995 (Web2C 7.5.5),  
kpathsea version 3.5.5, from SVN some weeks ago – I don't know how to  
determine the SVN version):

	l'utili-sation     for l'utili-sation
	l'uti-li-sa-tion   for l'utilisation

So I thought the above interpretation is right ... (LaTeX2e  
<2005/12/01>, Babel <v3.8d>)



The human brain operates at only 10% of its capacity. The rest is  
overhead for the operating system.
