abiword destroys RTF files on import
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:05 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 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.

Sample RTF file destroyed by abiword
This seems to work for me with current versions in rawhide.
