Abiword Annoyances

Has anyone else noticed how middle clicking on recent builds of Debian abiword causes it to decide that it doesn’t want to paste your text but instead will crash randomly and lose your document? If there’s any one single thing which will put people off using Linux then it’s wordprocessors which will crash without warning or without any option to gracefully exit. Please fit it guys.

I’ll fire it up under gdb when I get chance, but I’ll likely have to rebuild the whole damned thing with debugging symbols to get anything useful other than a memory reference.
