What version are you using?
Do you have colour management on?

We have one completely untraceable crash that only appears with some drag

If its a crash and we don't know about it (and there is no bug on 
bugs.scribus.net), yes.

Yes, always possible, though hopefully Scribus rejects them on start up.

Definitely can affect PDF results.

The 2nd one. You can still load documents from Scribus 0.8 in 1.3.4cvs. 
1.3.4cvs has many many large changes and we recommend using (which is 
the only option for Windows anyway).
