It should work as you expect.  All I can suggest is: be sure you're using
the same language where you learned the words.

I just tried it with a recent nightly:  Using language English, any words
included (an odd number of times, i.e. not unlearned) in
~/Library/spelling/en are treated as correct by Cmd-;, ispell-buffer, and
flyspell-buffer.  One misspelling is properly marked as such; I spellchecked
and learned the same word in TextEdit (in English), and now Aquamacs treats
it as correct as well.

If it's still not working, let me know, and we'll try to debug further.
