Your qtconfig_qt3 suggestion is invalid. As my analysis showed you had insane
MAINWINDOW settings in the ~/.scribus/scribus13.rc file. Changing them
resolves your issue. However, we'll go one step further. The window decoration
problem is going to be gone for good once avox implements max window size code
to force the main Scribus window to not exceed the root window size for your
desktop. I might add qtconfig to the Suggests for the package to show users
that it might enhance their experience, but an absolute dependency is an
overkill as Scribus _can_ be run without qtconfig.

Well, I did a fresh installation with a US english locale. I might try a
different locale to see what happens. But that's a separate issue. let's get
the window decoration stuff out of the door first
