Crash dumps are usually written to a file scribus.crash.log in 
~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter. This is best read with Console.app. 
Console lets you also easily read the system log, where crashes are 
registered together with information in which file the crash report is 
written. Another quick way to find the file name is

   grep crash /var/log/system.log
