I've run into a few bugs which at least i consider to be show-stoppers:

1) RTF brokenness. I can get SEGVs on such things as
a) Cut & paste. I can get an assert on *any* paste operation. To reproduce:
type, select, cut, paste.

**** (2) Assert ****
**** (2) n<m_iCount at ../../../../../abi/src/af/util/xp/ut_vector.h:79 ****
**** (2) Continue ? (y/n) [y] :

I can get segvs too, but they're harder to cause and have the same back-trace as

b) Re-importing an exported document with style information.

Both SEGV in the same place. To reproduce 'b', just save your favorite document
into RTF and try to re-import it. 3 Asserts and then this:


#4 0x0833f3d8 in UT_Vector::getNthItem (this=0x85df09c, n=3)
    at ../../../../../abi/src/af/util/xp/ut_vector.h:81
#5 0x0814268b in IE_Imp_RTF::HandleStyleDefinition (this=0x85ded28)
    at ../../../../../abi/src/wp/impexp/xp/ie_imp_RTF.cpp:5861
#6 0x0813a264 in IE_Imp_RTF::TranslateKeyword (this=0x85ded28,
    pKeyword=0xbffff2d0 "stylesheet", param=0, fParam=false)
    at ../../../../../abi/src/wp/impexp/xp/ie_imp_RTF.cpp:2793
#7 0x08137950 in IE_Imp_RTF::ParseRTFKeyword (this=0x85ded28)
    at ../../../../../abi/src/wp/impexp/xp/ie_imp_RTF.cpp:1488
#8 0x08137313 in IE_Imp_RTF::_parseFile (this=0x85ded28, fp=0x85f3d38)
    at ../../../../../abi/src/wp/impexp/xp/ie_imp_RTF.cpp:1239

2) Styles
a) Bug 2020
b) I'm having serious issues with the behavior of styles and the style drop-down
on the toolbar. A lot of times I just can't apply the style I intend to. This
commonly happens with Normal, Normal Clean, Heading N, ... Also, followed-by
styles don't seem to be getting applied sometimes. Neither bug is 100%
reproducible for me, but I can upload/send a document which exhibits the said
behavior and play around with them tomorrow to generate a better bug-report.

Please don't release until these 2 bugs are taken care of.
