Description of problem:
This is a strange one, but I hope I describe it well...
In Abiword, when typing out the first line of a sentance, when I reach the
rightmost margin of the page, it keeps typing beyond the edge of the margin.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type a line in Abiword that hits the end of the right hand margin
2. Keep typing and watch it keep trailing past the edge of the margin
I've tried this on multiple machines, one with a Matrox G400, and the other 2
with ATI cards, so it doesn't *seem* to be an X driver bug...
Marking as High because without this getting fixed, Abi is basically useless.

Screenshot to show WTF I'm talking about ;-)
I'm seeing this issue as well.

Okay, seems to be related to UTF-8 locales. Looking at it a little more to see
how to fix it properly.
It's also present in 8.0, and it also affetcs Dia.
Workaround: set locale to a ISO-8859-1 one ("LANG=en_GB.ISO-8859-1 dia").
I'm attaching two screenshots, one with LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 and one with

I've also tried upgrading to version 1.3 of Abiword with Abiword's RPM (Redhat
8.0 ships with Abiword 1.2) and that did not solve word wrap issue.

Worked around for 1.0.3-1 by making the locale non-utf8 in the abiword wrapper
script. Abiword 1.1.x handles this better but isn't yet ready for release.
Just letting people know that I am seeing this as well - and it is making using
Abiword/Dia quite fruitless task.
I am running RH 8.0 will all updates installed - a fairly standard install
(aside from the MS core fonts and the Mozilla 1.3B RPMs).
Is there a work around (comment #12 seemed to have something that may work - but
I am afraid that I do not know what he means) - or (preferably) an updated RPM
This does seem like quite a common problem (google searching lead to lots of
people asking but no solutions) that is still affecting people.
Is there anything that I can do to help (do tests/etc)? This really does need
to be solved.

Where is the wrapper script?
