bug#4356: 23.1.50; expand-abbrev changes point erroneously

From: Vincent Belaïche
Subject: bug#4356: 23.1.50; expand-abbrev changes point erroneously
Date: Sun, 06 Sep 2009 12:30:26 +0200

Here is the bug description. I found this editing some Visual Basic file
 with using http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/visual-basic-mode.el

If for instance I type <RET> after (--!-- showing point when I type <RET>):

MyVar = MyFun(1,True)--!--

Then in visual basic mode visual-basic-newline-and-indent is called,
which in turn calls (expand-abbrev). After (expand-abbrev) is called,
point will be moved as follows: 

MyVar = MyFun(1,True--!--) 

because `True' is one abbreviation. I have patched visual-basic mode, so
that a save-excursion encloses the call of expand-abbrev, otherwise I
would get:

MyVar = MyFun(1,True

which is not wanted. Stefan Monnier (address@hidden) confirmed
this is a bug of expand-abbrev, and asked me to repport it.

The wanted behaviour would be that after expanding `True', point would
come back to after the `)' where it originally was.
