That's interesting. What GhostScript version are you using? Did you
compile Scribus yourself? How old is your 1.3 build? Any chance you can
file a bug on http://bugs.scribus.net/ with a sample EPS file or two and
a description of how to make the crash happen reliably. If possible, a
backtrace from gdb would be extremely useful too, especially if you
compiled with --enable-debug. Including a sample screenshot of the
quality problem would be helpful as well.

Feel free to drop in on IRC too - #scribus on irc.freenode.net .

That EPS imports fine into Scribus here. It looks fine in GSView, a PDF
made with ps2pdf looks fine, and so does the PDF made from the imported
EPS. I did notice that the EPS doesn't have the fonts embedded (it
should have, generally), but that didn't cause a problem here. More info
