By default, many distros are configured so that programs running as
normal users do not create core dumps.

For example, on a default Debian 3.0 (woody) user account ulimit

craig at access$ ulimit -a | head -1
core file size        (blocks, -c) 0

If your distro also prevents core dumps by default, I recommend you run
Scribus from a terminal:

$ ulimit -c 1000000000
$ scribus

and see if you can get a useful core file that way.
