[Scribus] some font related stuf

I looked at the docs in question. There is definitely something with the
doc. I opened it up in a text editor and there is a missing LANGUAGE=


Here is the scrambled text:

<ITEXT CAB="0" CCOLOR="Black" CSIZE="36" CH="????dsfggfdsgfdsdfg??"

CSHADE="100" CSTYLE="0" CFONT="Impact Medium" CEXTRA="0" />

As for the EPS, this is the message I get from GSview:

Substituting .notdef for seven
%GSVIEW_PDF_MARK: /OUT /View [/Fit] /Page 1 /Title (PoY\341dn\375 text
jako v\355no...)
Substituting .notdef for rcaron

This suggests a problem with the glyph naming in this font.

My guess this could be caused by:

1) A bad .afm for the font, if it is a TT font

2) Something not right in fonts.dir

3) Something messed up in the font encoding. 

Looking over the problems, it might be a Mandrake bug, as I have not
seen the same problems. I even hooked up a French keyboard and launched
Scribus with lang=fr no problems with display or input on RH 8.0. 

Hope that helps,
