Can confirm this bug after Upgrade from Lubuntu 14.04.4 to 16.04.
(abiword 3.0.0-4ubuntu1.1 -> abiword 3.0.1-6)

As soon as text is added, the cursor begins to blink unsteadily.
Also, Abiword then begins to use unusual amounts of CPU (not enormous, but a few percents). When minimized, there's no CPU-usage anymore.
When there's more text added, the whole documents starts to flicker, especially the background. This effect can be lessened by shrinking the Window, zooming in the document or setting focus on another window (so the cursor doesn't blink anymore).
The bigger the window and the more characters displayed, the more flickering and CPU-usage.

System: Intel i7-2670QM with integrated HD3000 Graphics.
