[Scribus] Scribus 1.2 crash on FC1

Tonight I tried to upgrade to Scribus 1.2 via RPM. (I'm running FC1.)
When I did rpm -Uvh scribus*.rpm it said that shared-mime-info was
required.  I looked in the downloads section of scriubs.net, but didn't
see a package for that, so I found a rpm
(shared-mime-info-0.14-1.i386.rpm), installed it and then successfully
installed the scribus rpm.

After working with scribus for awhile, it crashed.  Here is the output:

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

[1]+  Exit 255                scribus

It is possible that I picked an rpm for the shared-mime-info that was
not correct for FC1.  Would that cause the crash?  If so, how should I
correct the problem?
