Man, you had me very worried there for a moment. I had to go check my most
recent book, which has been published but hasn't yet hit retail outlets.
Phew, it was fine.

I created the barcode the same way I have always done: by entering the ISBN
exactly as issued -- all the numbers, including the check.

Maybe the behaviour you describe is a recent change (regression?), because
I am using 1.3.5svn from 26 January, 2009, which is what the is contained
in the official current Kubuntu scribus-ng package; and like I say, that
seems to work fine.
