 I kindly asked (not knowing if this "mechanism in the NSIS installer which
can detect tampering" was relating to the checksum),

If any of this came across as being impolite, I do apologize and would like you to
bear in mind that English is not my mother tongue ;-)
BTW, in the meantime I have installed scribus-1.3.9-win32, looking forward
to using this great piece of software.
