Sorry to reply to my own post, but after digging further I found that it seems it is a bug in the HP 3500 series driver for Linux, ok using Windows on this printer, and not anything to do with Scribus.

I should never have doubted Scribus ! ;-)

The problem only seems to be found on the pages with content from the Master pages on pages 2 and 3. What is strange is that all items are aligned correctly on every page in Scribus itself. But when printing Page 1 is completely correct, pages afterwards are wrongly printed. Page 1 is based on one master page, and 2 and 3 based on other master pages.
