No issues here and I have been testing your files from the bugs you 
posted. Mind you I am running 2 or 3 versions of Scribus concurrently 
and within the debugger 99% of the time - even when doing real work. 
I have 1GB installed and often lots of apps running too. 

Have you updated Qt or video drivers ? I have the stock X-org drivers 
and performance is fine. 

There are no known issues with either the Qt which came with 10.1 or 
the Qt updated when 3.5.3 came out. There was one instance of Qt 
packages which came out of the KDE backports which did cause 
slowdowns on one of the dev's machines. Reverting to the earlier 
version solved the issue.

First thing is to move, not trash .scribus.

Second test create a new test user and login and see if the speed 
issue is still there. If not, this suggests a window manager.

run rpm -qa qt3 and post it.

We've had no other slowdowns reported on Suse.

This might be a good case for an IRC chat to try and diagnose it 

Hope that helps,
