Sorry, I guess I was just mislead by the behavior you described
I was using
ESP Ghostscript 815.01 (2005-08-25)
Copyright (C) 2004 artofcode LLC, Benicia, CA. All rights reserved.
instead I compiled
GPL Ghostscript 8.54 (2006-05-17)

but it didn't seem to make any difference on the EPS import... but I
think I was too harsh in my initial judgment of the EPS import. It
looked odd because a gradient filled polygon had disappeared, no
doubt for the :origin out of polygon" reason you describe. But
apart from that, the EPS -> native Scribus shapes import was
actually impressively good.
Trying to import the SVG still seems unhappy, I notice this time
that it actually presented me with an outline rectangle to place,
which looked like it was the right size, but when I clicked it down
it just opened a window titled "Warning", but with no content, and
is now using 100% CPU (but doesn't seem to be eating RAM), anyway,
it hasn't returned after several minutes so I suppose that's a
Anyway, thanks for the response, now that I see how close the EPS
import was to working properly I'm happy... oh, now I notice it also
left out a custom pattern filled thing, but gs doesn't seem to see
it either, so either gs or Inkscape left that out. gs does get the
gradient right though.
