On the second thought (and after discussing this with Rolf), there is
probably no reason why EpsEvaluate shouldn't expand things like
Momentum[p1+p2-p3] etc. by default. So we decided to add this to the
development version.

Thanks to Lingxiao for bringing this to our attention!

The change is very trivial, so that you can easily "backport" it to
Feyncalc 8.2 or use the workaround with MomentumExpand until the new
version is out.
