RH 8.0 + updates and self compiled qt 3.1.2  gcc 3.2-7 RH 8

I get the same result.  Repeatable with delete key only. With backspace
key no crash. 

With text simply typed into text frame, delete key has no effect nor

Short term fix do not press the delete key in an empty text box with
imported text. ;)

Not needed. Create a text frame. Double click in text frame > start

I am sure Franz will come up with a fix, although it could be Qt
related. Scribus has sometimes in the past had bugs which were in the
end,  surfaced as Qt bugs.

Hope this helps,
