Math environments using numbered equations should also work correctly in this version.''  However, that seems not to be the case...

In fact, I am using a modified version (for the Portuguese language) within the directory of the .tex source file itself, which, I guess, should be used INSTEAD OF any version in the system texmf file tree, right? Is this error suggesting that somehow the character @ is getting mixed up in the class?? How can I find out who the current maintainer of the package and his/her email is??
