To my eye this is a bug in ArcGIS, and I've submitted it as such to ESRI 
  Canada tech support. Metre is perfectly legal spelling of meter and in 
widespread use. However waiting for an update from ESRI for this is 
likely to take some time so the expedient thing to do would be to just 
change it I suppose.
