The bug you see is the bug,

sadly, Abiword is needing a developer (dev) to keep the project alive. This
is a concern to us, but we do not have any spare devs.... If someone has
some experience in such work, I can ask to arrange some assistance for them
- But the people who have quietly offered, cannot teach a new comer.
