Description of problem:
When Ignore All is used when spell-checking a document, the resulting file
will be destroyed when loaded again from a new instance of Abiword.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.at the prompt: abiword test1
3.press the spell-check button and choose Ignore All for testin
4.press the save button and exit
5.at the prompt: cat test1 (you should see a file very similar to the one
that I'll attach.)
6.at the prompt: abiword test1 ...."Oh, crap. Where's my data?"
8.at the prompt: cat test1 (to appreciate the death of your data)
Actual Results: abiword cleaned the content out of the file. (and
basically wrote the file without me pressing the save button)
Expected Results: abiword should simply load the file a second time.
installed version of abiword is:
depends on the following installed rpms:
Created attachment 39284 [details]
file that will be destroyed when loaded into abiword
This is fixed in 0.9.5.

in getting an update out, don't you think?
Come on guys, explaining to user that "they'll just have to type that memo
again" doesn't look good.
