I opened up the file and it does display incorrectly. However, I suspect
a mildly corrupted file. I would create a new file, copy the objects to
the scrapbook and then copy the objects to the new file. Then it
displays properly.

Moreover, looking at the file in a text editor, there is no language set
in the file. Qt, is *very* picky about correct LANG setting in your
environment. I tested it, by setting export LANG="no_UTF-8", this
removed some incorrectly displayed characters in the text file.

The gradient background, once copied to the scrapbook, does display
according the color settings in the file. 

Hope that helps,
