    Hi Anthony,
              Thanks very much for neat animated GIF showing the problem. It
    appears that linebreaker method has a bug in doing text layout. I hope
    that Tomas Frydrich can have a look and see if it can be fixed. It may
    just show up in your Chinese locale though. I don't recall seeing this bug
    in English AbiWord.
