Nothing! Even if your wife says so <g>..

This should work, if you have enough text to flow into the third box.
Sometimes, not always, you need to do something to force a refresh of
the screen, by scrolling etc. Franz has made quite a few improvements to
the text boxes and improved the auto-flow of text frames. Note: This is
one of the most complex parts of the code in Scribus, so it is easy to
break if not coded carefully. 

Feel free to send sample files.
