I too have seen 'phantom' fonts. If one opens a new document and save, having used only a space character, then the phantom.sla file shows

 <ITEXT CAB="0" CCOLOR="Black" CSIZE="12" CH=" " CSHADE2="100" CSCALE="100" CSHADE="100" CSTYLE="0" CFONT="Century Schoolbook L Roman" CEXTRA="0"
CSTROKE="Black" />
 and this is correct since the space character of that font has been in fact used. Moreover, if one uses a font and deleted its characters the fonts may still show in the *.sla file and in style--> font menu as being in use. If the font is not supported, but one thought it had been deleted, scribus will crash with 'signal #11,' it seems.
 If we had "Reveal Codes" feature like Word Perfect one could edit attributes more easily. But scribus, of ocurse, has text strings in XML to control attributes, as opposed to WP control codes, for which there is, in another context, wp2latex.
