Hm, my trick works in 2.10.9, but I see that in Zope 2.10.6 it has no
effect, like you say.  And using expand macros in 2.10.6 indeed has
deadly results...

Looks like this *was* reported earlier and already fixed in Zope
2.10.7.  :-)  The changelog says:

Launchpad #262313: respect the Expand macros when editing flag when
editing a page template through the ZMI

So Daymon: please switch to 2.10.7 or later.
