yes, it's a bit sad but it's a "leave" case: you can't really use 
scribus for most non latin languages.

it's not about fixing errors, but about implementing the support for non 
latin languages.

you may be welcome to give a hand, but you should be ready to invest 
much time in it!

in every case: keep an eye on scribus: with  bit of luck, support for 
non latin languages is not too far away in the future and (as most 
things in scribus) IT WILL ROCK! :-)

have fun
