Hi :)
Ahah, if AbiWord, or any other OpenSource office program, reads it fairly
well then there is something wrong with LibreOffice.  It is very unusual for
LO to have such an extreme reaction to a file.

Can i recap on what has been tried so far?  Have you re-named the User

No  I have not tried that.

That gets LO back to factory defaults and removes all Extensions.  If the
file still doesn't open then it's time for a bug-report about LO itself

I may do that later, but do not want to now for two reasons. First,
I have not tested your fix above. Second, A bug report should
include the problem file so developers can reproduce the problem,
but the file is a draft of an unpublished paper. I would happily
give it to a specific developer, but I definitely do not want to
post it publicly

So, to immediately work-around the problem does a save with Abiword
sufficiently fix the problem so that LO can open the file?

Yes. I'll do save-as HTML from LO, clean that up some with
vi, then return to LO and fix the format.
