Hi Abiword

On my system, slackware, libc5, static version of abiword 0.7.13 i keep
getting the following error message

GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid_r(): failed due to: No such user 1000.

during startup of abiword. The logo screen apperas for a few seconds and
then it dies.

What can i do to fix that?

Thanks a lot.
