If I say @[eris]full'
I expect it to default to [eris]<masinter>full.hello. However, it doesn''t.'
If I then type "@<cr><cr>" without supplying any more information, it *does* work. Somehow the defaulting when the file name is on the line is not the same as what the defaults are when the file name is given after an "@<cr>".'
