I'm not actually sure that that is a bug in scribus as I've seen this
happen with a large number of applications which have gifs which utilise
a transparency. Personally, I would avoid using gifs if you can as a few
weeks back those lovely folks from Compuserve (or whoever now own them)
won an extension to be able to obtain royalties from anyone using gifs.
PNGs and JPGs are far nicer to manipulate ;-)



Tired of bloated software which gobbles up your system resources?
Bored of hearing your harddrive being thrashed by inefficient code?
Feel like tearing your hair out when you see a blue screen of death?
Then why not come over from the darkside, and become one of the ever
increasing number of people using Linux - it's free, it's open,
it's easier to use than Windows and more reliable as well.
