> bonjour marie-nöelle,
Thank you very much for your quick answer.
In the mean time, the renamed 'autosave' file has eventually opened (I was
having lunch, and when I came, it was here!). It that has been saved 10mns
earlier than the real one so, hopefully, I will have not have lost too much.

I'll just comment your propositions, in case it can help someone else.

I have 4 Go RAM, and no other computer nearby.

Yes, the pictures files are quite big, as they come from my 12 Mpx camera,
and I didn't resize them because I want to keep the best definition for the
printing book. It's too an early stage to know which picture will have to
remain big, so it can be printed double-page, and wich will share a page
with several others.
Do you think resizing perhaps half of them could improve Scribus response

Yes, there all are in a dedicated folder.
None of them are on a real page, yet. They are scattered around the one
empty page (I needed on for the document to be created), in thumbnails
sizes, and I'm grouping/moving them around while planning how to organize
them in the book.
I'll save the rename folder trick for another time, in case I need it.
