What version are you using, with what input method, and on what 
platform? I've been unable to reproduce this issue, but reports of it 
keep on turning up, and I'd really like some details.

Ouch. Same as above - platform, version, and input method please. If 
you're on Mac OS X please look in the Console application for the crash 
dump generated by Mac OS X when Scribus crashed, and paste that into a 
bug report on http://bugs.scribus.net/ . If you're on Linux, please use 
`gdb' to get a backtrace (instructions here: 
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/gdb.php) . Unfortunately there isn't a way 
to get a crash dump on Windows at the moment if that's what you're using.

The first thing you could do would be to help track down the problem by 
helping one of the team reproduce the problem on their computers. Mostly 
that'll just involve poking around to figure out what might be different 
on your computer.

Nope. Demos of Enfocus PitStop and Adobe Acrobat Pro are available and 
might suffice for short term use, but the full versions are seriously
