[Scribus] scribus pdf and helvetica font problem

well, as I said: the font is not installed on my system, so I can't possibly embed it. I saw in the scribus source code a couple of times that helvetica is used. Could this have to do with it?
again: I don't have helvetica and don't use it in my documents.
How can it end up in the pdf?

 I think what happened is that you didn't tell Scribus to embed the font, 
 so acroread is faking it the only way it knows how.
