[scribus] Native OS X Tries to Connect to a Server

Hi All,
   I have been playing with 1.3.5rc3 for a few weeks when I get a 
chance. I've just downloaded and had a bit of strange 
behavior. When I launch, it puts up the application window 
and the New Document dialog as expected. However, it then almost 
immediately puts up a standard Connection Failed dialog with the 
message, "The server may not exist or it is not operation at this 
time. Check the server name or IP address and your network connection 
and try again."
   Clicking OK dismisses that dialog, but it reappears a second time. 
After clicking OK again, I can click the New button on the New 
Document dialog. At that time, I get the Connection Failed dialog 
twice more. Then everything seems to work normally. Clicking Cancel 
in the New Document dialog does not bring the Connection Failed 
   Interestingly, when I go back to 1.3.5rc3, I get the same exact behavior.

   My connection to the network and the Internet are working correctly 
and I don't use any in-house file servers. I'm running Mac OS X 
10.5.7 on a 1.83 GHz MacBook Pro. Our connection to the Internet is 
DSL through a Netopia DSL router/modem. DHCP is turned on, but we use 
static IP addresses for our machines.
   Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop this from happening?
