I didn't try F3 because I didn't know of that shortcut. 

I should also add that after I restarted Scribus the OK button was no
longer grayed out. I did lots of editing of styles and the OK button
was always available. Apparently whatever caused it to happen was a
one-time thing.

I searched the bug reports and didn't find this specific bug, although
I did find reports of a couple other windows that displayed the same
behavior. I'm guessing it's something in the interaction between
Scribus and Gnome / Metacity on standard Jaunty. I've never had this
happen with any other window in any other application, so it definitely
seems to be a Scribus problem. Something is wrong, but it may be minor.
