I too am running Ubuntu with KDE (isn't it just plain nice?), Ubuntu 
Breezy Badger to be precise.

I installed Scribus-ng plus the docs, using Synaptic. I now have a 
1.2-something version of Scribus, the Scribus-cvs and Scribus-ng 
installed and all working.

I can not replicate your problem. I can create  a picture box, move it, 
resize it, import photos into it, replace the contents etc....

I have only tried this using JPGs tho', as those was the only photos I 
could find.

sorry 'bout that
