[Scribus] word wrap error

This is something I've just noticed, though I presume it's has been 
there for some time.
Using the 1.2.2cvs (21 April), when the text needs to wrap in a frame 
between sentences, it may wrap with the next line having a leading space.

I'm not sure about the UK, but I know in the US, typists/word processors 
usually put two spaces between sentences, and this is perhaps where 
Scribus has a problem.  Since we're in such a habit of typing two spaces 
between sentences, Scribus needs to allow for this. 

I know Latex takes care of this, so the default English behavior is to 
put a "double" space (em space in typography?) between sentences 
regardless of what was typed.  In French, the default is a "single" 
space.  The line break needs to come at whatever is the end of this spacing.
