Ok, this seems repeatable (after a clean boot, nothing else running):
        Open AbiWord
        Open a document
        Use File --> Close to close the document
        Start typing -- eveything appears OK
        Use File --> Close to close the document, when prompted, do not save
the document (havenít tried so far with saving -- now tried, doesnít
matter whether I save or not)
        Start typing -- strange behavior

There are some variations -- when I created this document, saved it,
then did File --> Close, then started typing, I had the problem. (So,
sometimes it seems I have go through the File --> Close sequence twice
to see the problem, and sometimes not.)

Also occurred after I modified this document, then used <alt>fs to save
it. (Occurred after one instance of File --> Close.
