If there's nothing following after that it means that Scribus hangs 
right at the start of searching for fonts.

I'm afraid I've to ask you to do the following:

* type the following command in Terminal:
	gdb  /Users/test/Applications/Scribus.app/Contents/bin/scribus

* wait till gdb is finished starting up and shows the (gdb) prompt

* type "run ENTER"

* wait till Scribus is stuck in searching fonts

* hit CTRL-C

* type "where ENTER"

* you can now stop Scribus with "CTRL-D ENTER y ENTER"

* send the backtrace to me :-)
