This worked quite well but when I reloaded the new abw file,

abiword told me that the file is not o.k. I tried this several times. It also happens with zabw format. Reloading the doc file worked fine though. RTF crashed abiword.

Yes. I don't know why we went back to that behaviour. Did someone mean
to do it or is it a bug?
Could someone please explain? If there is no explanation, I will assume
it's a bug and I'll fix it.

Please run through what is needed to crash abiword. It really helps to
have clear bugs. I find it hard to crash abiword right now, maybe
because I can't think outside my own box. It really helps us if you can
describe how to crash abiword and how to get crazy behaviour.
There are too many crazy behaviours to tell them here.
Well start with the first one. Even one helps.

It really helps to have complete bug reports. If you provide good bug
reports you'll find your bugs get fixed rather quickly.
