I think you may be right about this, but it seems this is more of a 
"best practices" kind of advice, that might do well to be on the Wiki so 
others can avoid subsequent frustration.

For some, this may be the preferred way of working -- having a static, 
well-organized image directory with subdirectories, and in that case, 
they might not want the bother of making copies elsewhere.

One thing which has occurred to me is that, even though some of the 
Scribus team seem to wince at the thought, the fact that .sla files are 
text-based means that, even if one commits a "faux pas" such as David 
did, it is possible to load the .sla file into a text editor and do a 
search-and-replace operation to fix all the image references in the .sla
