I had this same problem earlier this week. As I hadn't used Abiword for
several days, quite a number of packages had been upgraded in the interim,
so I don't know where the problem originated. I downloaded 0.7.5-1 and it
segfaulted on me too. So I just recompiled the .deb from the source package
and it works great now.
Perhaps abiword uses some internal symbol(s) from some library and those
changed? Or is there a better explanation?
