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.
See: http://ahnews.music.salford.ac.uk/scribus/documentation/topten.html

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,
