I think so. Imagine that you open a doc, you hit the right arrow and... abi
marks it as "modified" (if you don't mark it as "modified", and the user
quits abiword, it will not be saved, and thus the new cursor position will
be lost).

I think that this kind of information should be saved in a "session file" or
something like that.
