Almost 3 hours of digging and I found the cause was:

Gif images used, where SVG or native tools in Scribus should have been 
used. Gifs have no place in page layout in my opinion.

A couple of images had somehow strayed off the canvas. 1.3.2cvs 
handles this a lot more smartly.

I have replied to Krischan off list with the details.
