[Scribus] Code fixing (pdf writing with embedded object)

If you insert an object in a text frame (this frame is on a page) (between two 
characters) and insert a new page before this page (the text frame is on this 
page) and write a pdf from document, then the inserted object in the text 
frame won't be in the pdf, because the inserted object is not on the original 
page. That's why I think if an object is an inserted (embedded) object (in a 
text frame), then pdf writer doesn't need to check position of the object, 
but needs to check position of the text frame.
