Today I compiled 1.3.0cvs, and the colours of the Scribus document under work 
are now much more similar to its PDF/X3 output viewed with Acrobat Reader or 
PhotoShop, compared to Scribus 1.2.1 (I just opened the same document with 
version 1.2.1 and 1.3.0cvs). So here I can see a big improvement.

Yours sincerely
