A quick look shows some weirdness. The page size is defined in mm, but the 
objects in points. I would file a bug with issues.openoffice.org

Batik displayed it, but also showed out of scale object definitions e.g 
28000pts instead of 280.

I opened the SVG in inkscape 0.40cvs and copied the ungrouped bits into a new 
inkscape doc. They were huge (A0 sized).  Rescaling was easy and then saving 
into a second Inkscape doc then imported fine into Scribus.

A couple of hints: Especially with CJK fonts/text, add these in Scribus. No 
viewer could display this properly, except Inkscape (it substituted another 
Chinese font correctly)

Set your default font/size in Scribus to match the one, you used in the X/Y 
axis. This will make the text import into Scribus much more cleanly.

Hope that helps,
