Abiword blues

Abiword is a nice, fast word processor. is better for importing and editing complex documents, but it can be painfully slow so I only use it if I have to. Abiword is also usually very stable, so I was surprised when it started crashing on startup. I tried upgrading, I tried downgrading, but it kept crashing. I finally found this bug report at Redhat’s Bugzilla. Comment 8 mentions starting Abiword like this:

$ abiword --geometry 800x600

Not sure why or how, but it worked!
