That method on the wiki is somewhat out of date. Scribus can import 
spot colors via the Edit > Colors from other documents. In 1.3.4cvs, 
you can import spot colors of all kinds directly from EPS, PS and 
even some .ai files. 

The issue you are hitting is the way the spot colors are embedded in 
the PDF. That should work fine in 1.3.4.
