Hi Juh,

I agree the wording I used to report this bug is less than elegant 
but it really is what you say! :)
This is a real bug imo. We are talking about the exact same behaviour.

AFAIK, it isn't fixed yet. Maybe you'd want to add a note to existing bug.

Yes Craig, this works (although I would add that once you've started 
resizing the frame holding down CTRL key will only allow to resize 
proportionally... At a certain point, you have to let go that key if 
you want more flexibility) and if it's OK I'd put that as a note in 
bug #1659. Might be useful. I still think the behaviour of Scribus on 
selecting overlapping frames is difficult to deal with, even with 
that trick. I think there is room for improvement here. :)
