[Scribus] shape sizing

Hi, I've narrowed the problem down a bit. It is that if I change the width 
or the height for a shape, the other dimension is changing to keep the 
original proportions. I can find any box in the Shapes properties menu that 
refers to proportionality...the box that locks the dimensions just prevents 
any alteration of size, it does not lock them into proportionality. Is there 
any way to stop this from occuring? I don't think the problem is the 
Ubuntu/Kubuntu bug, because I don't think that is what I am using.
I am running version 1.3.4 for Mac OSX

Thanks for your help,
