I did try this early, again now, but it still crashes. One thing I can 
say is that it says

'QDom: saving invalid character , the document will not be 
well-formed', on the cmd line several times.

I also tried running Scribus under XFCE but it was just the same.

May be I'll try your IRC channel later, if I get time. I really got to 
get this fixed - its driving me nuts crashing every 15 mins or less ..
