This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.8, X toolkit)
 of 2004-08-31 on iceage
configured using `configure  --prefix=/users/brucer/share 
--exec-prefix=/users/brucer/sparc-sun-solaris2.8'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil

  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

create buffer
----cut----
$abc{'fish'}
def
ghi
----cut----
narrow-to-region
----cut----
def
----cut----
position to end of buffer
type $ a b M-/ SPC M-/

does not expand as it will when buffer is widened
AND
message "dabbrev-expand: Args out of range: 5, 17"
is received (diff numbers possibly)

HERE's MY THINKING.
the remainder of the buffer is like unto another buffer
which dabbrev-expand does search.

HERE's MY USE:

narrowed to function for editing but wish to dynabbrev
various variables etc. and it doesn't work.
