Corel Draw - MS Word Conflicts?

Firstly, I wasn't sure whether to post this question in the Corel Draw zone or the MS Word zone, hopefully this is the right area.

Is anyone aware of the CorelDraw Graphics Suite causing bizarre problems with Microsoft Word 2003?

I've recently had an issue where a Word document will not save.  It's a document that has been used/updated/saved a number of times without a problem.  

I tried 6 or 7 possible solutions including registry hacks and all sorts.  Nothing worked.  

The only thing, in terms of hardware or software, that had changed on the PC recently was that Corel Draw Graphics Suite had been installed.  I uninstalled Corel Draw and MS Word returned to normal and I could save the document as normal.  

It appears to be Corel Draw causing issues with Microsoft Word!

It's a shot in the dark, but has anyone experienced anything like this before?
