[scribus] Print while preserving transparent overlay.

The way I use to flatten a semi-transparent overlay in a Scribus 
generated file is to: export to pdf 1.4, load into Acrobat Reader, 
print to file from Acrobat Reader, and then use the ghostscript 
script ps2pdf13 to produce a flattened pdf.

I tried saving the same file by printing to file from Scribus but no 
matter what settings I use the semi-transparent graphic becomes 
solid.  Similarly when I save as eps the transparency becomes solid.

I use Scribus 1.3.5 dated 03 November 2008,
Build C-C-T-F-C1.4.10
Ghostscript   8.63

on Slackware Linux 12.0
