Comment 23 for bug 519541

I can confirm that this does not occur in the newest upstream Abiword release.

The past two releases seem to be bugfix releases, and should be appropriate for Lucid. See their changelogs here:

AbiWord v2.8.3 Changelog - www.abisource.com/changelogs/2.8.3.phtml
AbiWord v2.8.4 Changelog - www.abisource.com/changelogs/2.8.4.phtml

The package can be found in this PPA for testing:

https://edge.launchpad.net/~andrewsomething/+archive/experimental

Build log: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/44488830/buildlog_ubuntu-lucid-i386.abiword_2.8.4-0ubuntu1_FULLYBUILT.txt.gz

Attaching debdiff, and diff.gz.

Subscribing Release Team for approval.
