Ah, now that's much more informative. That's why it's always important
to quote the full, word-for-word text of any error message. Omissions
that seem unimportant to you can, to someone more familiar with what's
going on, critically change the meaning of the message or give it
meaning where it had none before.
It's very odd that you're getting that error when writing out the
preferences, as Scribus must only open one file to do that. I can only
assume it's leaking file handles somewhere else (perhaps font
loading/scanning?) and failing silently, so that the prefs write
_appears_ to be the first error.
Hmm... on current CVS on Linux we have seven files open after start-up
with no docs open - three copies of /dev/pts/? for stdin, stdout, and
stderr, plus two sockets and two pipes. Hardly earth shattering. Three
more are opened with a blank document - all ICC profiles. It doesn't
look much like it could be a file handle leakage bug with font scanning,
unless it's something Mac OS X specific.
It would be good if you could file a bug on http://bugs.scribus.net/
about this, since that'll help keep it all in one place and avoid
putting too much noise on the mailing list.
