Yes, and that's the main drawback of the current implementation.

If it's enough, just use tabs in normal textframes.
Otherwise, at this time  we recommend designing tables in OpenOffice
and import them later into Scribus. There is an article about this on
http://wiki.scribus.net .

Better table support is on the roadmap on the way to 1.4.
