Most likely Metacity. Franz has already put in one workaround for bugs
in Metacity not following Qt window hints properly.

As an FYI, I test Scribus cvs often with RH9 and KDE 3.1.4/Qt 3.1.2 and
have never encountered freezes - even with cvs. I have never seen this
kind of behavior in any of the cvs versions.

As alternative to KDE/kwin you could try blackbox as a window manager.
It is light in memory usage and very fast. RPM's are available on

Hope that helps,
