Replying to myself, there is no bug in hyphenmin. The Spanish patterns
don’t add "bue-no" (I haven’t asked yet, but I guess this is to avoid
starting a line with a negative particle). I have to add an hyphenation

But there is an issue with hyphenmin shown in this sample:




        [strict, givemefive]


hyphenmin requires a value of 4 to hyphenate a five-letter word (and 3
to hyphenate a four letter word).

Isn’t this a bug?

Many thanks for your help,
