IIRC, it’s a known issue with Mac and can be  worked around by editing the 
initial position of the windows in the scribus configuration file. But, as i 
have not a mac at hand I can’t help more though I suspect the file would be 
somewhere in ~/Library/preferences. Might a "locate scribus.xml" help.

my 2 cents.
