I know Ubuntu bashing has been fair game, in regards to how well or not
it works with Scribus (I've never actually had any specific problems
with it myself), but Ubuntu at least gets this right:-

Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) Standard -
                                  Dev          - 1.3.5RC

I think actually it may be worth seeing if the original Ubuntu/Scribus
problems are still there, as I have a feeling the spinboxes may have
been fixed for many people. At whether we like it or not, Ubuntu is
still one of the most used distributions.

(and it has the right version of Scribus too ;-) )

Kind regards
