    I have filed a bug (ID 0002552) and described how I created the TIFF. The short
answer is scanned in, then modified with the GIMP. If there's anything
more I can do to help track this down, let me know.  For now, I've
been converting images to a different format to get things to work

   I'm hitting my heavy Scribus usage time of the year. I am always impressed by
the rapid advances the program has made from year to year. (I started out at 1.0.)
