[Scribus] qt3 causing strange problems ?

I'm having lots of problems that I've never seen before. I'm using 
Ubuntu Gutsy with Scribus from Malex's repos.

The problems I'm getting are :-

    * Lots of random crashes
    * when I edit text using the Story Editor, I get different
      characters than the ones I type in. This is really annoying !!
    * you can't delete blank lines in the Story Editor
    * Text styles sometimes go weird using the above.
    * The text you see when the app starts ie 'checking fonts' etc, is
      much smaller than it used to be.

I think this might be related to when I recently installed qt4-config to 
try and get the menu and layout sizes bigger (they had gone to a 9pt 
size rather than the usual 12pt size). Then I installed qt3-config 
realising this was the correct one.

I've tried deleting the .scribus folder and re-installing scribus, and 
also purging and reinstalling the qtconfig too, but all seems but the 
same as before. I also have scribus-ng installed if that makes any 
difference, but mainly use for work.

I hope someone can help as its really driving me mad !

Kind regards
