Description Cube 2000-02-19 18:47:52 EST
When abiword installed from RPM is run, segfault occurs.
When abiword installed from static tarball is run, window appears, but all
pull down menus are empty.
Bug does not appear in Redhat 6.1

Here's a gdb backtrace

(gdb) bt

Also, cross-reference to http://katz.linuxpower.org/piglet-archive/msg00059.html
(and following in the thread).  Abiword seems to be the only thing hit by this.
There's also a similar bug in Abiword's bugzilla,

Quick and dirty work-around, run with -nosplash

Most likely it is abiword that is incompatible with something in out beta.

We'll try to follow up with abiword folks, but for now I presume this is not a
bug of ours.
