It seems the debug option --enable-dbgutil can cause it by detecting
a failed assertion. The next step would be to start disabling extensions
(removing --enable-ext- stuff) to find which one triggers it.

When changing the status of --enable-dbgutil, be sure and do a make
clean before recompiling or else there will be problems:

Lastly, based on my past experience with problems with Abiword, very often
a crash a few seconds after the startup of a word processor (which often
really means, jsut after something is typed in) can be caused by problems
with the spell checker and/or the main text font. Try to change the font
and disable the spell checker before typing anything in and see if that
stops the crash.


  Cheers,
