[Scribus] Metacity bug

I brought this up before and was told that it is a bug in Metacity.

When selecting a text colour or a font from what should be a drop-down list
on Fedora Core 4, it comes up instead as a full-screen multi-column list .
This in itself is not a problem, except that when the number of colours or
number of fonts exceeds the available space on the screen, the rest
disappears off to the right of the screen and can not be accessed.

However, the usual drop-down list appears when selecting a line or fill
colour through the Show Properties/Colours menu.

Metacity as distributed for Fedora Core 4 has been updated a couple of times
since I initially reported this, but the bug is still there.

What are the chances of changing the way that the font name and text colours
present the available choices to match the way that the Show
Properties/Colours menu displays those choices?

On the other hand, I actually prefer the "whole-screen" approach to showing
the colour and font choices, because you get a kind of a panoramic overview
of what's available. If there was a way to scroll horizontally to show the
remaining choices, that would be ideal, in my opinion. I don't know how
possible that would be, though.
