Sometimes a Microsoft Word-document gets screwed up, possibly by Microsoft
Word itself. I noticed that AbiWord 0.7.10 was an excellent Word-document
recovery-tool. And much more off course! But sadly enough, this seems no
longer the case with AbiWord 0.7.13! I have included a sample document for
anyone who might want to check it out: AbiWord 0.7.10 gets *some* sense out
of it, AbiWord 0.7.13 crashes just like Microsoft Word does! Maybe it would
be good to include the old importdriver as a recovery-tool?
