Starting from a terminal and monitoring .xsession-errors with tail -f shows
no errors from Scribus - X did complain about some other things (mainly
missing fonts) when it started, but nothing when Scribus starts or is
used. The terminal reports only the "Can't find Plug-in" error when
Settings->preferences is clicked, nothing else. (I mis-quoted the error
message earlier - sorry.)

Both machines have identical behavior.
