[Scribus] Problem importing EPS in Scribus for OSX

I've just got going on Scribus for OSX & have been working  
through the documents at docs.scribus.net.

I've just tried to do the gif/EPS comparison exercise at http:// 
docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&page=importhints and I can't get  
the EPS of the penguin to import into my document. The gif went in  
fine but whether I use File> Import> Get Image or File> Import>  
Import EPS/PS... I get nothing in my Image Frame, and if I try to  
export as a pdf Preflight Verifier shows a missing image.

I know the document says later that when experiencing problems with  
EPSs, they should be tested with GSview first, but I understand this  
is unavailable for OSX. I've tried opening the EPS file with OSX  
Preview & after a brief rendering time the image was visible, so I  
know it's in there. On the other hand, Adobe Reader 6.0 wouldn't open  
the file.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks very much

Jon Howard
