Good news: Filed an abiword bug, and was able to narrow down the source of the problem, giving steps to reproduce, creating a thesis about the source of the bug, and successfully testing the thesis, like a good bug filer should.
Bad news: A 1.5M, 143 page document is not really an ideal minimal testcase.
Worse news: I’d have preferred to notice this kind of bug before I created two 140+ page documents that trigger the bug.
[Yes, those are my collected, organized class notes, one class each. Tomorrow, rinse and repeat with Civil Procedure.]

Ooh- I feel your pain. Recently, filed a bug in Kformula under very similar circumstances.
PPS. Don’t forget the Solstice concert at St. John the Divine.
Have fun boiling down your notes into an outline.
Bundles of fun. What else could I have? I’m actually using the TOC for the doc as the outline; it seems to have worked fairly well for some mid-term practice exams, and gave a nice easy reference in case of panic. The TOC is what is creating the Abiword problem, though.
