Well, I think he wants to create a page which can be folded in 3 equal 
parts (like invoices you get, those in long small envelopes).
I tried this also, and also experienced weird results:

- printing directly from scribus scews too much to one side (landscape, 
scewed to the right), while I have other documents (eg. from openoffice) 
printing out just fine. The page on itself looks just fine though

- creating a pdf from my nicely-divided-in-3-equal-parts page results in 
a pdf that scews too much to the other side, cutting off on the left (or 
the right, can't remember)

==> this is not WYSIWYG behaviour. Maybe has something to do with the 
landscape setting?
