Further update...
Eventually 1.1.5 froze in KDE also. I ran 'top' and it was showing 
scribus using 99+% of my CPU (which is a 2.66MHz P4) -- some kind of 
race condition?
A warning requestor appeared in scribus before I killed it, but since 
there wasn't any text printing inside windows I didn't know what it was 
warning me about.

Here's a thought -- I'm having a lot of trouble with my laptop losing 
time. Some time before scribus froze I had used ftp to correct my system 
clock (which was about 2-3 hrs behind). Could that have messed up a 
running process like scribus? Doesn't explain the problem in Gnome since 
I left the clock alone then.
