bogus document

Now that i've got pspell working with abiword, i'm using it for more day
to day work, but i'm worried about the occaisional "X is a bogus
document" errors i get. so far i've really only lost personal letters and
such, nothing important. and i can always open up the .abw files as .txt
and grab text out of them to start anew. still it's a bit of a pain.
any ideas why when i save a doc as an abw file and open it up later it
sometimes doesn't open? here's what the top of current doc in question
looks like when i open it as a text file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<abiword version="unnumbered" fileformat="1.0">
