Dear Craig, Jon, and Andreas,

      Thank you so much for your help. As one last chance, I booted  
up in safe mode, and tried to run Scribus. It would not continue after
Creating Font Cache. I think I'll leave Scribus alone until I move  
onto a different machine in the future. I do appreciate all your help  
suggestions, but it isn't worth it at this point.

       Keep up the good work, gents. And ladies, too (those who  
emailed me privately)!
