Just to clarify a touch, the "two space" habit is a hold-over from 
typewriters and when computers only had fixed-width fonts. Whenever you 
have proportional fonts, this is considered unacceptable (at least it is 
here in Canada). Not to criticize, but I'm surprised anyone does this 
any more.

This is not to say Scribus is behaving correctly, but I wouldn't 
consider this a bug. I'd mark this as a non-critical enhancement.

Just my 1.5 cents.
