[Scribus] Strange behavior of an image frame

I am using the 1.3.3-version of Scribus, compiled from source the other 
day :-)

I tried to import an image in Scribus into an image frame. So far so 
well. But then I wanted a bit space around it, and no matter what I do I 
cant find a good way to do this. The Properties box shows a tab named 
Form, wich seems to be able to do what I want, but almost everything 
there is grayed out. (What is not, is the possibility to change the form 
and to flow the text around it, either around the form or around the 
frame, and this works somehow - see screenshot below).
The problem with this is, that the distance given as a standard (0.353 
mm) in the ?Form? tab of the properties box seems only to be applied on 
the right hand side, and not on the left. This makes it tedious to 
overcome the problem :-(

I also tried the script from here:
but it gives me an unchangeble distance of 0.353 mm on the right hand 
side too, and still not any possibility to change the flow distance :-/

Any ideas anyone before I take Gimp and make this (unregular) frame per 
hand? (would be a pity, and more work than if this just worked, but if 
it is the only possibility ...)

This seems related to:
But not quite ...
... and it mentiones:
?try turning on the contour line and editing it (edit shape under shape 
tab, select edit contour line).? ... but this only gives me space to the 
right and the bottom (... and, by the way, the undo-finction dont take 
this space back, it jumps over this change and goes to the former)

Best regards
