Hello David. First thank you for referring my name correctly. Most 
people don't know which part of a Chinese name is given name, and do not 
know if a Chinese guy is insisting on original name order, or have 
changed order to follow latin way:)

I thought Peter filed a bug on ooo, but I think a bug should be filed 
for scribus too. Really scribus should detect and refuse insane SVG 
file, especially when the buggy ooo is so widely used.

However I am pretty upset because my reported bugs related to CJK are 
marked "resolved/won't be solved" because "scribus currently not support 
CJK officially", may I suggest just to lower down the bugs' priority and 
to keep them there as reminders instead of closing them? Because scribus 
will support CJK some day I think. This is another story though.
