This only brings up 1.2 and works fine.
I cannot get 1.3.4 from the command line

Just finished compiling 1.3.4 cvs April 10 (I wonder how come my 
directory shows April 15 but the cvs shows April 10 ...) The same 
thing occurs. Actually, it occurs only with "English". As soon as I 
select another language like "English (British)" or anything else, 
the program behaves normally.

Wierd bug because it is not very consistent. I retried quite a few 
times going from one language to another and everything seems ok now. 
Can't reproduce what happens when launching the program. BTW, as an 
additionnal info, when Scribus starts and you go to Prefs, the 
language field is blank (but in my case, the program picks up French 
at first and the GUI is in French by default). Once you select 
"English", the field remains blank when you get back to the Prefs 
dialog (and there is no change in the GUI language as well). Then, 
you pick another language, including "English (British)" and 
everything is back to normal.

More or less, the same behaviour as Michael described.
