I had this on a recent job. We imported the file into 1.3.5svn and there 
was no problem printing from there, but in the end we stuck with and printing from PDF so we could stick with stable scribus.

One issue however was that the two sides of flyer in question were over 
11 meg as a PDF which made it hard to email to other people for remote 
printing. I know there are workarounds for this too, but it seems to get 
silly when you need workarounds for your workarounds !  On the other 
hand, there were 3400 copies to print, which is a lot of local printing.

That's what we do. It's been a adequate work around.

A bit harsh. It seems to work 8 times out of 10 !
