on perusing our manual on this issue I find this:

"Note that currently text filters are not document-specific and are not 
saved with the document, but rather with your Scribus settings. "

So it would seem that this is in your .scribus directory, but I'm not 
sure where. The Scrapbook is not version-specific, but there are other 
files which are, such as scribus135.rc and scribus13.rc.

Since I don't have any text filters on this computer I can't be of more 
help tracking this down, but perhaps you can investigate these files on 
your computers.

Tsoots may be the one who ultimately can give the best answer.
