That has changed now, :iabb's have stopped working either.  I don't get
it, this vim-latex beast is a mystery to me.  It's complex, and it's
buggy. :-(

I've found an old (2004) usenet posting from upstream maintainer Mikolaj
Machowski stating that this is a known issue, but there's nothing in the
upstream BTS.
