We (those of us in IRC tonight) found why we arent getting translations
for the strings in docinfo etc when you run the process like
qmake -project
(edit resulting scribus.pro for the ts file u want)
lupdate scribus.pro (this is where u get errors about missing QOBJECT

Should be able to have CVS updated tomorrow with patches for these.
