    I am using gentoo linux and kde 3.1.3.

    Any time I open an .abw or .doc with text in it, abiword crashes with this:

    Application "AbiWord" (process 3420) has crashed
    due to a fatal error.

    If the document only has a picture in it and I save and reopen it, abiword
    does not crash. I don't know where to start looking for the problem. It
    was working fine and then I started trying to get it to import wpd
    documents and after messing around for a while it started doing this.
