Ive been informed about a bug still in abiword latest versions, and I can confirm it still exists in abiword-2.6.3-updated.pet

Running abiword from the command line and trying to insert a symbol from the "insert" menu gives:-

Code:
(abiword:28293): Pango-WARNING **: shaping failure, expect ugly output. shape-engine='BasicEngineFc', font='Standard Symbols L 32', text=''
Aborted


Ive looked into the bug (is there a thread for it somewhere?), and found some quite useful information...including a patch from the abiword team itself.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=493565

My debugging skills are limited at best....some of the bugs above point to it being an abiword problem, and some to it being a "pango" problem.

Someone with more technical skill than me will need to look at this (i.e. practically anyone!), but my first reaction would be just to drop .docx support while the versions of abiword that support it are made more stable. Which is the previous version that was used in 4.1.2? that "just worked"?
