Two related bugs in abbrev.el

M-x `edit-abbrevs', narrowing the buffer, calling `edit-abbrevs-redefine'.

Then `write-abbrev-file' kills all abbrevs
except the visible one in the narrowed buffer.

At least this behavior misses the Manual where is
written: "writes a description of all current abbrev

Happens even if the buffer has been widened before, but
not, if `edit-abbrevs-redefine' has been called again.

Bug was remarked only with an explicit `write-abbrev-file' after
`edit-abbrevs-redefine', but not forcibly (maybe sometimes also?) if
Emacs was closed and abbrevs written at this occasion.

Proposed fix below.

Also with this fix installed, the question `save-abbrevs?' while closing
Emacs  has to be denied if `write-abbrev-file' was called in this
session; otherwise all abbrevs will be deleted and only void abbrev
tables saved.

This seems an other bug.
