Regardless, according to the bug report the problem was fixed in Scribus 1.4.1svn. So hopefully version 1.4.1 will be released soon.
Thanks for the information RupertPupkin.
I am getting new hardware in the near future and would like to update my GNU/Linux distro (Fedora 16 or Debian 7), would like Scribus to work properly.
If I get the time (before new hardware), I will test Debian 7 and Scribus 1.4.1svn, and provide feedback.
Thanks again for the information on Scribus 1.4.1svn.
