Same version, same issue - I get a monthly calendar as a Word table for 
our church's monthly newsletter from someone in the "management". So I 
load it into OOo, have it converted to a 600 dpi PDF file and import it 
into Scribus as a picture. It's not magnified or something, just fits 
into a frame and covers one page.

For printing, I let Scribus make a 600 dpi PDF file of the whole Scribus 
document. This isn't too big, at least it doesn't play a significant 
role whether there's a PDF file included or not.

BUT: when I print it on our copier machine, it will take a whole lotta 
more time printing these pages than any other pages (even if they have 
large pictures on them). To me this means that including a PDF into a 
PDF from Scribus means producing very "complicated" code the RIP will 
have to crunch on...
