1.3.6 would have set your house on fire... so, yes, has to be considered a stable version!

on a more serious track:

- in the computer world, stable does not mean that there are no bugs. mostly, it means that there are no known serious problem with the software and that the specific version will not get new feature but only bug fixes (so, theoretically, no new bugs will show up)

- you may try to move a copy of your sla to another directory, open it with scribus (the images should not show) and produce a pdf: if if then works, it means that you have not enought RAM for the job... (yes, scribus *is* hungry!)

- you may try to upload your .sla to http://bugs.scribus.net (you can mark it as private to only let the devs see it) and see if somebody can reproduce / fix it.
