[Scribus] embarrassing line height problem

Hi all,
  just to confirm that I had  the same problem, with a file originally created 
in Scribus In one of the text boxes the line hight was plain wrong, 
and didn't change, no matter how I tried to redefine it in the paragraph 
style. But the style definition had an impact, because in other text frames 
where I used this style the line hight changed.
I quickly created a new text frame and copied the text from the frame where I 
had the problem over, but the problem remained. Maybe copying also copied the 
formatting over.
What I did not try is to type the text again, and not just do copy and 

I had a copy left untouched, and then used this with again. I am 
unfortunately too busy now to investigate... and will be away from 9-28 May.

Best wishes,
