Prevent Hotstring Expanding when Type Hotstring + Number + EndChar

I'd like to prevent my hotstrings expanding when I type the hotstring, then a number, then an EndChar

eg one of my hotstrings is:
::gt::get
However, when I type 'gt1' then a space, the expansion is triggered, and gt1 is overwritten by 'get' (actually by 'gget').

Is there any way to avoid this?

This is not the normal behavior (try it in a stand-alone script). Something else is wrong in your script.

Oh, you're right - it does work in a standalone script.
I'll have to do some digging ...
