I'm using a bog standard Ubuntu Gnome system. I also get odd other 
things going on like different letters disappearing than the ones I 
edited two places to the left.

1.3.4 doesnt seem to be so bothered.

I tried removing the scim packages that had given problems in the past 
with Ubuntu, and oh yes sometimes my dialog spinners wont change when 
clicked. But it hasnt made much difference.

perhaps i'll try installing XFCE on top and run Scribus under that to 
see if changing the Desktop Manager helps.
