| Which version of XEmacs do you have?  In GNU Emacs 22, define-abbrev is

|     (define-abbrev TABLE NAME EXPANSION &optional HOOK COUNT SYSTEM-FLAG)
| while in XEmacs 21.4.20 it is:
|     (define-abbrev TABLE NAME &optional EXPANSION HOOK COUNT)

I'm using 22.  OK, the last two arguments were 0 and t.  I think
SYSTEM-FLAG and COUNT are both option.  SYSTEM-FLAG defaults to nil
and COUNT to 0, so it can also be omitted.  I thought they were both
new since octave-mod.el only passed four arguments to define-abbrev.
But now I see that COUNT had to be added when SYSTEM-FLAG was added,
even though it is just set to the default value of 0.
