Brave to post a link to an 18MB document on a public mailing list,
though. I just hope your server doesn't melt ;-)

I am surprised that the PDF is 18MB though. Is it a very large format or
very high res job? At work, an A3 newspaper page tends to result an a
1.5MB PDF (average - I've seen up to 4MB and as low as 200k). That's for
85lpi printing with colour graphics at ~180dpi and mono at 300dpi.
Admittedly that's not with Scribus - one of the things on my to-do is to
rebuild a few of our pages at work with Scribus for comparison - but I
don't see any reason why Scribus should produce larger files (well,
unless you're placing EPS graphics or PDF files on the page).
