OK, I got the same problem with the files you sent. I've committed and
uploaded a new version that reverses the change, so @value is expanded
at the time of writing again. Undefined @value's, when used in index
entries, should not cause failures, either. It's quite possible that
there is some combination that breaks, but it seems to work better for
the files I tried.
