The text engine is under heavy development. Expect many issues to be solved 
after the release of 1.3.6.

You have some opportunities here. If you have a document open, you can always 
remove all unused colours in the colour dialog. If you don't have any 
document open, just specify another (smaller) colour set as your default.

Please check the bugtracker. There might already be an RFE, and with the 
planned resource manager, this request might become obsolete.

I hope you won't, since 1.5 will be a developer version. Better check 
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/1.3.x_Roadmap and 
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/1.3.x_Roadmap_Extras for what you can 
expect from 1.4 ;)
