Sample RTF file destroyed by abiword (3.35 KB, text/rtf)

Description Burt Holzman 2002-06-11 10:11:33 EDT
This is probably a similar failure mode to bug #57781.

If you ask abiword to read in an rtf file on startup, like so:

abiword foo.rtf

Abiword will overwrite the file.  Starting Abiwor separately and attempting to
open the file leads to an "Error Importing File" and the original file is extant.

A sample file is attached.

This seems to work for me with current versions in rawhide.
