there seams to be an easy fix for it: just run scribus in its default
language (which -- at the end -- is english).

iirc -- and if the situation hasn't changed in the last few years --
this will solve your problem.
afaik, it's a problem related to way ubuntu patches qt, so scribus has
really no control over it!

on the sunny side, i guess that the issue should be solved with qt 4,
so future releases of scribus should automatically work correctly!

have fun
