[Scribus] really slow text editing

Hi, decided to do my first project in Scribus, taking a brave step away from
Quark XPress...

I have a reasonable machine (P4 1.8Ghz, 256Mb ram) but Scribus is terrifically
slow when I type into a text box. There is a few seconds delay between each
keystroke and the letters appearing on screen.

I'm using Debian/Sarge/Testing, "Scribus 1.2RC1"

Is it just the way it is, or is something wrong? I've googled and seen articles
which give me hope that it's a temporary problem.

thank you
