There is no problem either with Scribus, my breezy scribus-cvs package, or the
stock Ubuntu Breezy install. I just finished installing Ubuntu Breezy,
scribus-cvs, and Gnome in a qemu image and didn't find any problems with
windows or fonts. All of it looks very good. As Maciej's experience with
creating another user (documented in the BTS) shows it is something in his
custom settings that creates this problem.
