A .abw document that will not open -- sounds like a bug.

Can you please create a bug at http://bugzilla.abisource.com/
and then attach the following files to the bug when created:
1. the .abw document that causes the bug
2. the hand-edited .abw file that works around the bug

Can you please raise a separate RFE (request for enhancement)
bug in BugZilla for this idea. Please put [RFE] at the
start of the bug summary, and set Severity to Enhancement.
