Removing duplicate labels fails when using abbreviation dictionary

Has anyone noticed this behaviour? Once again, something that seems so simple is rendered painful.

I have instructed Maplex to abbreviate the label to improve the Fitting Strategy, as well as remove duplicates (within 50km) to improve Conflict Resolution.  However, now "Rock Creek" is placed directly next to "Rock Ck" when obviously these are the same label for the same creek, and this behaviour is not seen when I don't use abbreviations.

My guess is Maplex is removing duplicates AFTER it consults and places labels using the abbreviations dictionary, when it should be the other way around.

What to do but complain to the abyss?
