Sounds strange, but just check the following.

In Scribus, go to Help->About Scribus and confirm that it reports
Scribus1.3.5svn and also check the date

In your sla file, open in a text editor and check the second line that
it is a 1.3.5 doument

Do you have a 1.3.3.x version of Scribus? That will not open 1.3.5
