[scribus] Anyone know if this is already fixed? Apply From To changing the To affects the From...

There's actually a logic to it (that doesn't mean this is a good
behaviour; just to explain): If you enter 32, you first enter a "3", and
for obvious reasons Scribus prevents the "From" page number to be larger
than the "To" page number, so when the "To" page is a "3" (even just for
a brief moment), the "From" page is set to 3 (the largest legal value
when "To" is 3) as well.

Then it will but in a default of say 28 to 38 if 38 is the last page in the document.  If I click on the 38 and replace it with 32 it automatically changes the 28 to 3.  If you don't spot it you end up deleting a load of extra work!
