How did you run it? It'll only work on an unmodified Scribus from the
script console - use 'execfile("/path/to/script")' . That's because of
the way Scribus runs scripts - I've posted detailed explanations before
(IIRC one in response to Kobus's question about multi-threading).

If you did in fact run it from the script console or with 'Load
extension script' and the macro patches, then I'm interested in more
information about what's going wrong.
