I often recommend renaming this directory to .scribusbak as a
preliminary troubleshooting step.
That said, this has been a non-issue with most recent versions of
Scribus since 1.1.4 or so. Thus, I have, except for testing used the
same settings files for several versions, including daily CVS builds.
If you want to delete the directory, go ahead. Scribus will regenerate
the files on the next launch. The biggest issue is font substitutions
with older < 1.1.1 files or resetting keyboard shortcuts.
Hope that helps,
