[Scribus] Type 1 font problems

First of all, thanks for the unicode integration in scribus. I compiled 
scribus 0.9.10 on both of my computers (college linux 2.1) and it works fine 
with truetype fonts. I can write in all the writings supported by the font in 
the same file!! That is great!!!

Problems arise with type 1 fonts: 
When I change the font to one of the URW type 1 fonts like bookman, I cannot 
type any text (in neither encoding) and the Insert - Special character 
(Sonderzeichen einf?gen) shows me an empty table. Is that because of type 1 
fonts not supporting unicode? I find in my fonts.dir in .../Type1 that the 
type 1 fonts support unicode and a lot of other encodings:

I can't imagine where the problem is (QT is still 3.1.1, I wait for 3.2). 
Thanks for any help!
