[Scribus] Strange Bug with Scim

Dear all,

I'm using currently scribus- on SuSE 9.3 and encountered a strange 
bug whenever "scim" (V1.2.0-4) is *installed*.

In most of the input fields, e.g. the margin fields in the "new document" 
dialog, any input will be discarded and the field is set to "0.00" whenever 
the input focus leaves the field (with TAB for example). The up-down switches 
right of the input field are affected, too.

Most curious, the "first page number" field in the same dialog is not 

The problem cannot be worked around by setting QT_IM_MODULE=simple, only 
deinstalling scim helps. scribus complains about missing libraries then, but 

Known bug? If yes, what are my options besides deinstalling scim everytime I 
want to use scribus?

Kind regards
