The bug report does not contain the way to reproduce the problem.

which leads to a double expansion.

Then it is an incompatible change in Emacs after v21 (which I can test
with).  I would much prefer code without explicit version-checking
(especially since there are a few independent branches); for this I
need a way to determine whether I'm inside `expand-abbrev'.

Is there a way to detect this?
