Another Bogus Document

Hi all,

I have attached a 2426 bzipped tarfile called AbiTest.tar.bz2,
which contains two files, Bogus.abw and Works.abw.

 bzcat AbiTest.tar.bz2|tar -tvf -
-rw-rw-r-- chris/chris 4002 2001-12-18 05:29:28 Bogus.abw
-rw-rw-r-- chris/chris 3900 2001-12-18 05:29:36 Works.abw

By the names you might gather that one works, the other gives the old Bogus
document message. The files are almost the same:

diff Bogus.abw Works.abw
< <p>Skinner B.F. 1987. Upon further reflection. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall Inc. </p>
< <p></p>

I took a very rough draft from a paper my wife is writing in M$word, exported
to text (within Windows98), switched to Linux, imported the text, and saved
in abiword format. I deleted and changed text until I managed these two files.

This is strange to me. I am using my own build based on a current CVS
download started at 5:43 MST this morning (01/12/17), but similar behavior
results with all recent CVS downloads. My system is 386, updated RH 7.1.

I do get the following warnings:

Gtk-WARNING **: invalid cast from `GtkButton' to `GtkCombo'

Gtk-WARNING **: invalid cast from `GtkButton' to `GtkCombo'

however, this is true for both documents.

Is this just me, or what?
