Well, that's why i'm worrying.

A little "test", one bar "music":
PS by LilyPond: http://brownian.org.ua/plain/scribus/first-barno.ps (468K)
PDF by LilyPond: http://brownian.org.ua/plain/scribus/first-barno.pdf (20K)

PS was imported into Scribus document and exported as PDF:
http://brownian.org.ua/plain/scribus/first-barno-scribus.pdf (17K)

Note stems... So, first two files look good in ghostview, kpdf etc.
and acroread.

The third one looks bad.

That's why i'm worrying.

Scribus 1.3.4, 2007-05-27, C-C-T-F-C, using Ghostscript 8.15.4.
