    HI Petter,
            Thanks very much for testing abiword. I'll look into the delete
    table crashes since they appear easily reproducible. I haven't crashed
    abiword wiith tables for some time so I very much appreciate people
    kicking the tires and reporting bugs. Please take the time to full out
    bugzilla and if you possibly can please try to find reproducible bugs.
    Even if you say keep resizing the doc until abiword crashes is a big help.
