: You've been right, there was indeed a bug in Scribus. Its fixed now
: in current cvs, tomorrow the fix should be in the anon cvs.

Now that this was mentioned, I recall having an issue with tifs
greyscaled tifs where only the black component went through - the white
part got translated to transparent, which I thought was odd at the time. 
Being that it was a rush job, I just converted the images to png and
they worked fine, but thought I would mention it.
