bug#27501: 24.5; hippie-expand-only-buffers not considered when buffer-l

From: Tom
Subject: bug#27501: 24.5; hippie-expand-only-buffers not considered when buffer-local in 'try-expand-dabbrev-all-buffers
Date: Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:11:42 +0200
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

When I set the following in a mode

   (setq-local hippie-expand-only-buffers '(config-general-mode))

and have a .c file with c-mode open, and a file with config-general
mode, then 'try-expand-dabbrev-all-buffers expands from the .c file
as well, which is not what I expected.

It turns out, that the function (and all other try-expand-* functions
as well!) loops over all buffers in a while loop with 'set-buffer,
which then uses variables local for that *current* buffer or the
global ones, but not buffer-local variables from the original buffer,
from where the function was invoked. Since 'hippie-expand-only-buffers
is nil globally and not configured locally in c-mode (in my case),
it uses dabbrevs found in that file and thus ignores my buffer-local

The attached patch fixes this behavior by working on copies of the
relevant variables. It fixes 'try-expand-dabbrev-all-buffers only,
since I am not sure if the patch would be required by the other try
functions as well.

best regards,
