This a bit odd. You'll notice that whenever you hit enter by itself on the spellcheck window it will close the window. However, the close button is always show as being active. You'll notice when you tab a small highlight is applied to the button. You can select this button by using space. So in your case, pressing tab, space would change the word, instead of closing the window.

I'm unsure if this is intended or not however; it's also unclear if this is a gtk issue or something specific to abiword
