User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/78.11.0

emacs version GNU Emacs 28.0.50 (build 344, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.24.23, cairo version 1.16.0) of 2020-12-31

I have a butter "learnabbrev.txt" open with abbrev-mode enabled,

and in my init file,

(setq abbrev-suggest t)
(setq abbrev-suggest-hint-threshold 0).

My (global-abbrev-table) includes:

"foo"        1    "find outer otter"

(I checked to make sure that foo expanded to "find outer otter.")

When I start to enter "find outer otter," and no matter how many letters I enter, including the entire phrase, there are no suggestions in the echo area.

If I understand the info entries for abbrev-suggest and abbrev-suugest-hint-threshold, should not a hint show in the echo area, even after I type the first "f?"
