Uhm, when I move an object, I want it to move _by_ a certain number of millimeters, and not to the next full one. But that's just my opinion...

Couldn't Scribus try to figure out what you're about to paste, and in case it's just text (and you're not inside a text container), automagically draw a text box and insert it? That would possibly save a click or two...
