Unfortunately, this solution does not work for me. There are
no previous versions of Abiword installed on my test machine,
currently just Abiword compiled from source.
Just in case, I removed the compiled version and tried (again)
the abiword-1.0.1-Suse.jeo.1.i386.rpm, but this also crashed.
I believe this rpm is the Gnome version, and what I was trying
to get working was the gtk+ only version.
Thanks for forwarding the info, though.
