thanks, Paul

ok, here's the exact sequence. running scribus for the first time from
the console, click on edit-->preferences-->general. after clicking on
"general" and before the general preferences palette comes up, the error
message is displayed on the console, and both the messages come
together. and as soon as you set your preferences and click on the "OK"
button, the anti-aliasing is off. i get the same messages together
again, when i run qtconfig from the console, as peter had suggested.

hope that helps somewhere. if it is of any help, i've been compiling
scribus from 0.8.0 and noticed the same behaviour with every subsequent
version on suse 8 and redhat 8 too.

thanks and regards, subash.
