[scribus] mysterious bootlog file

1) How did you create the file in the first place?
"BOOTLOG.DAT...which I created to keep a log of ..."

2) Do other apps ask for this file ever?

3) Try deleting the .scribus directory equivalent for Windows. (I
don't know what this called on Windows, but on Linux it is
"/home/username/.scribus".) On Windows it is probably "C:\Documents
and Settings\username\scribus" or maybe "C:\Documents and
Settings\username\.scribus" but I don't use Windows. And then
restarting Scribus

#3 is prolly yer best bet
