Perhaps. It's not necessarily a useful prompt, though, when Scribus 
should be able to figure it out its self 95% of the time. All we should 
really need to do is compare the image dimensions and resolution, and if 
they're the same we can make the reasonable assumption that the user 
probably just moved the image, or is replacing it with one they'd 
probably like to be positioned the same.

Sure, it'll be wrong some of the time, but the user can easily just fix 
those odd cases. I suspect it'd be a lot better than bugging them with a 
dialog all the time.
