Thanks Nicholas and Dan. I thought there was probably a reason. Perhaps the dictionary needs to give the third person singular forms since these are not straightforwardly derived from the headword.

 No, it shouldn't. According to the rules ‹ *mm*›, ‹ *nn*›, ‹ *ll*› and ‹ *rr*› are simplified when closing the unstressed syllable. The 3rd person sg. press.-fut. is spelt ‹ *kemmer*› ~ ‹ *kebmer*›.

The SWF Dictionary gives the spelling "kemeres". This word occurs in Late Cornish with pre-occlusion:  /kebmer, kybmar, kebar/. Should it not be written  /kemmeres / kebmeres/ ?
