Yes, I am on Ubuntu 5.10 as well and get the same result with
Scribus-1.3.3 8 Feb.

Importing brings the warning;
"SVG file contains some unsupported features"

So I guess that answers your question, my Inkscape is 19 Nov 2005 and I
haven't updated it.

There is a close coordination between Scribus and Inkscape
developers. Guess it will be sorted out eventually

Remember both programs are in development

I am not sure if it is worth a bug report at this stage, but feel free to
do so if you wish
