Au contraire, there have been several postings about this problem on
the abiword-users list. (I guess we didn't have any developers
running XFree86 v4 ... I know my Mandrake 7.1 is still v3 series.)
Now that Harold has figured it out, perhaps someone would add it to
the AbiWord user FAQ? Harold, it would probably also be helpful if
you re-posted your solution to the user list.
