I'd like to use eledmac and cleveref in the same document, but I'm running into trouble with something like this:



a b c d

The error message I get (on every second run with either pdflatex or xelatex) is:

! Use of \gl@poff doesn't match its definition.
\actionlines@list ->\expandafter 
                                 \def \csname \@tempc @line@name@plural@prea...

l.7 \beginnumbering

If I comment out the cleveref package, it works fine (but I need it in another part of the document).

Can anyone think of a workaround?

The release 1.10.1, which I have just pushed on CTAN, fixes this problem.
