In fact, the text flow stutters at exactly the description of Charlie 
Chaplins' Modern Times :-D

In the mean time, I have started a new text chain and copied the 
'snared' text in there. Than the behaviour became even more 
unpredictable: text went missing from the canvas, but also from text 
editor and even stranger... it was not the same text!

The only thing I could think of, was to change body font from Liberation 
Sans into Bitstream Charter and for now, this seems to help: I could not 
repair the broken chain, but the new one hasn't played up and will 
hopefully not start to later in the process.

Do you think this problem is indeed font-related? Anyone else had issues 
with Liberation Sans in Scribus? I would like to know, as we are working 
on another book design with this font and it would be sad to make the 
same mistake twice.
