Yes. It got mangled into an email address somewhere along the way.

You'd better rewrite the internal macros to work properly; replace the
definition of \maybe at space@ (l.479-491 of abbrevs.sty) by:

\newif\if at abbrevs
\def\abbrevs at t@st at ic {%
   \expandafter\let\expandafter\reserved at b\expandafter=\reserved at a\relax
   \ifx\reserved at b\@let at token
     \@break at tfor
\newcommand\maybe at space@ {%
   \expandafter   \@tfor
     \expandafter \reserved at a
     \expandafter :%
     \expandafter =%
                  \do \abbrevs at t@st at ic
   \if at abbrevs

It does exactly the same thing, except things are rewritten to rely on
its own conditional (hence the rewriting of \t at st@ic into \abbrevs at t@st at ic).
