It is neat to be able to put any number of any accents on top of any letter in AbiWord. However, when you cut and paste the resulting text anywhere else, you don't get the standard accented vowels (líkë thìs), but a series of two separate unicode characters. This leads to some interesting but pretty irrelevant bugs (try it in the terminal).
AbiWord should replace character-accent combos with single accented unicode characters when possible, at the very least on cut. (Actually it would be better if it happened immediately, because having to hit backspace twice is unexpected and mostly unuseful behaviour).
