[Scribus] text to outlines? - recreateable crash

I am able to reliably crash Scribus (and, often X11) when I attempt to 
convert a text box into outlines via the contextual menu received when I 
right-click the text box. Okay, I understand that scribus isn't really 
meant to be able to do this at all, but because the option shows up in 
the menu, I tend to forget. I'm running Scribus 1.1.4 on Mac OS X 10.3 
via Fink.

The only thing I can think of that could cause this (other than not 
having been designed in) is the fact that Scribus can't local a valid 
Ghostscript version. This is really sad because I have gs 7.05 installed 
outside the /sw file tree and have had every version available via Fink 
installed at one time or another and Scribus has consistantly failed to 
find gs. Do I need to set an environment variable or is this a known bug 
with the Fink install script?
