   Alas, no, it is not reproducible.  I remember being frustrated because I had this text box that
I couldn't type in and couldn't delete and I think in my attempts to get rid of it Scribus crashed. 
I was trying the "delete" key and the "del/backspace" key (I can never remember which one is the
one which normally works :~), and ^X, as well as moving the box around.  I'm not sure I knew what
I had done just before it crashed last night since I was thrashing a bit trying to get rid of this text box.
I also had just scanned in the photos (under OS X) and started gimp 1.2.4 before the crash. 

   I opened the file again today and found that I could delete the problem text box.  I tried recreating
the file from scratch but it is hard to recreate my "wanderings" as I figured out the new version of Scribus
and settled on the final layout. I did discover I cannot delete a "selected" text box when I am in the
text-entry mode (The cursor/hand icon) but I could when the selection mode  (cross-shaped icon)
is selected.  That may have been part of my problem (late) last night. 

  I doubt that is much help.   Thanks for taking a look at things.  I'll try to have more useful information the next time Scribus crashes.
