Hi Alex,
still the same weird window behaviour after the update -- I've assigned 
the bug 2750 to you, I hope, you don't mind :)

There is yet another issue with Scribus on Breezy/Gnome which Scribus 
devs blame on Debian's handling of QT config files and deny to deal 
with, see this bug:

In short, Scribus on Ubuntu/Gnome launches with wrong GUI font encoding 
and with much to big fonts. Since Ubuntu is targeted at inexperienced 
Linux users/Windows switchers, it's probably to much asking them to 
start their experience with Scribus from tampering around with qt 
configs. Is there a way to solve this issue while packaging Ubuntu debs 
and to deliver them with sane configs?
