That's due to hyphenation. Set minwordlength to 7 or higher. To fix
existing docs use my dehyphenator (wrote that yesterday,
http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=970 ) and hyphenate the text again.
Should be much faster then.

I'm doing a 60+ pages magazine every two weeks, text is from HTML and
I think next time I'll do it within six hours. Look at the PDFs:
