I can't reproduce it with either AbiWord 2.8.6 or SeaMonkey 2.0.13.

Can you print to a PostScript file and send me the output. You can also
view the PS output with evince, gv, or gs to check if the problem is
with the PS file.

You could try testing abiword with Type 1, TrueType, and OpenType/PS
fonts to see if it is font specific. If you run fc-match "font name" it
will tell you if it is Type 1 (pfa/pfb), TrueType, (ttf) or OpenType/PS
