If you use the mouse to double-click to go to edit mode, the cursor will 
be placed where you click. Click outside the frame, then back again to 
go to Select Item mode.

Your prayers are answered! We now have an *Official* Scribus manual 
available for purchase which is exactly what you're looking for, and
