The version of abiword with 12.04 does seem to have some bugs. I find both are a 
little slow but i think abiword is a little more lightweight which suits me. 
Both apps are going through a refining stage i think at present.

However, i much prefer to do most of my docs with a text editor and then 
transfer to abiword. less clutter and i concentrate of my thoguhts.
