hard to say ;)
Anyway - scribus uses external backend for BCD generator.
You can find it at:

Can you try your ISBN code there - in web application, please? We could see if 
it's a bug in scribus or in backend (it has higher propability as Scribus 
calls only something like newPS = cratePSfromCode(foo)).
