Interesting: stable and etch were different and confusingly, the etch 
branch had an older version than the stable branch on 
debian.scribus.net ... .

It persists and is worse: the pdf export is without the graphic in this

Done, ID 5568.

Like a good Debian user, I used 1.2.x for a long time. ;)

Both, gs-afpl and gs-gpl fail.

In the version the pdf file is without the 
graphics, too. In the earlier versions ( and 
1.2.5.dfsg-5+b1) the pdf output was still fine. In scribus 1.2.1-1 both 
(pdf output and displayed graphics in scribus) was fine.
