well, I respect your experience, but just for the record, Abiword never
crashed on me, and I've had my fair share of things I opened with it
(ancient docs, overloaded picture galleries and so on), but maybe the
stability for me comes from the fact that Gentoo allows me to only
compile in things into Abiword I really need. There are a lot of things
not compiled into my version, making it rather lightweight. :)
