[Scribus] newline issue in pdf fields

being a happy camper with scribus since quite some time, I've created some 
PDF forms with Scribus, containing some pdf fields side by side, 
preallocated with some centered text containing newlines. Users edit this 
text and print the form. 

After upgrading to, the newlines are replaced with '\\r' in the pdf 
export, rendering the forms unusable. Examples attached. I intentionally 
excluded the embedding of the font in order to reduce the pdf size 

While at it, is there a way to control the vertical line size of such text 

Thanks for this master piece,
