no, i was not.

but i just tested it and in 1.3.8 you can't indead move the content 
defined in the master page on top of the content of the page itself, not 
even by reordering the layers.

i thought it was already in there, but 
http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=9070 confirms that it has only been 
implemented for 1.5svn.

davide, for the time being, you can create a text frame with the page 
number character in it, place it in the scrapbook, correctly set some 
guides and place, and place the page number on each page from the scrapbook.

i don't think i can suggest you to switch to 1.5svn in order to be able 
to do it in the proper way.
