the first thing i would suggest would be to export the svg form 
inkscape using the "plain svg" option, i shouldnt really matter, but 
it can cause problems. the next thing  would suggest is to ether 
convert and text boxes or "flowed text" i think inkscape calls them, 
int normal pieces of text (flowed text has been removed from the draft 
svg spec, so wont work...), actually, someone can correct me if Im 
wrong, but i dont thing that text works with svg import in scribus? so 
you may be better off converting all text to paths straight of.

although i haven't tested if any of that helps or not...
