See if you have two Windows themes in the Scribus theme selector in
preferences. We recently had a report that one worked ok with non standard

Scribus usually runs fine with all styles suppled on XP, you dont
need classic. It seems to relate to Qt rather than Scribus code.. however
unless a bug is actually found, we probably wont fix or be able to fix it
until our Qt4 releases start. Right now, all efforts are on 1.3.4.
