[Scribus] Scribus frozen

   I don't know if this will help or not.  I am on an iMac, 10.2.8, Apple's X11 beta.
A few weeks ago, I had Scribus crashing repeatedly as I did a Multiple Item Copy w/ 
displacement.  I was about to send an e-mail to this list when on a whim, I rebooted.
The machine froze during shut down and I had to hit the big red switch.  After coming back
up, the problem had gone away.  I was also using the GIMP 1.2 and who knows what else
at the time.  I don't have the Apple Script because it only works for Panther.  The Scribus problem
you had may be a response to something systemically wrong that can be fixed with a reboot. 
Whether Scribus or something else contributed to the problem, I don't know.

I was chugging along quite well with Scribus on my iMac desktop (which has been working fine unlike the laptop installation problems that Martin is familiar with), until suddenly this morning Scribus froze up, and now refuses to respond.  The only thing I did different was (that I can think of), I had downloaded Kevin Walzer's Apple Script to start Scribus from Mac desktop (Sorry Kevin!).
