bug#42611: 26.3; edit-abbrevs lets me type and commit, but doesn't store anywhere and abbrevs don't work

Brett Randall
Actions that triggered the bug:

M-x edit-abbrevs

Enter abbrevs in fundamental or global abbreviations at bottom of the list, e.g.:

"dfn" 0 "definition"

C-c C-c

Buffer appears committed (modified flag disappears). Close buffer, test the abbrev in "abbrev-mode" minor mode and nothing happens. M-x edit-abbrevs again. The definition I entered is no longer there. This is in the same session. Emacs was not closed/reopened. The definitions are not applying/temporarily saving.
