I don't think that *should* be necessarily be the case.  If
Scribus will print the user-defined paper size from the top left
corner the user should easily be able to print, say, a 5" x 5"
paper on standard letter size of 8.5" x 11".  As it is, Scribus
appears to print from the bottom corner.  That is the bottom edge
of the user-defined paper is aligned with the bottom edge of the
standard paper.
