My reason for asking is that versions of LibreOffice provided by
an OS's repository sometimes have unintended bugs in them because of the
changes they have made in their version. I haves seen complaints over
the years about bugs that exist in an OS version of OOo that did not
occur in the OOo website version. I think I have seen this with LO, but
I'm not real sure.
As it has been mentioned, repeatedly changing the document's
format could be the guilty culprit.
One warning about AbiWord. It has been my experience that it does
not handle large text documents with extensive formatting and graphics.
I opened a copy of one of my Base chapters (1.6 MB, 45 pages) with it.
It crashed after creating a saved version that was 2.4MB! The latter is
not a correctly formed zip file.
One thing that I forgot to mention earlier is that correctly
formed .odt files are zipped files. It can be unzipped by renaming the
.odt extension to .zip and using unzip. The content.xml file in it has
all the content of the .odt file without any of the styles. If a new
text document is created, it can be modified to contain the content.xml
file from the problem document. Extract the content.xml from the problem
document. Change the extension of the new text document to .zip. Then
add the content.xml file to this zip file. I double click a .zip file to
open the Archive Manager which you use to add the file. (I don't know
the name of this program in Xubuntu.)

I'm not sure about this: Where did you get your copy of LibreOffice?
Via the Xubuntu Linux distro, 64-bit X86, 3.5.something kernel.
And would you mention what version you
are using again please?
"about" says Version 126.96.36.199 (Build ID: 360m1(Build:2))
