Hello Robin,

Please upgrade your scribus package from 

deb http://debian.tagancha.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib
deb http://debian.scribus.net/debian/ stable main non-free contrib

The current version of "scribus" in our repos is Test
your EPS import after the upgrade and if the problem still persists then file
a bug report at bugs.scribus.net and attach a test case EPS to the report, so
we could test it here. I don't believe it would be productive to try solving
this in the 1.2.x code as the current stable Scribus series is 1.3.3.x and has
been for a while. I was waiting for the release of Etch to make the switch of
"scribus" to this new codebase.

Also, please double-check the ghostscript you are using. The symptoms you are
describing logically seem to fall into a bad gs pattern i.e. pdf output
(internal scribus code) is fine, but eps doesn't show in a document (using
