There is a file called prefs13.xml that contains  a lot of the Preferences info (I'm not a 
programmer so I don't know what the right name is ). Go to c:\users>your 
name>.scribus. That's in Win 7 x64.
Here is a part of the file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
	<level name="application">
		<context name="AlignDistributePalette">
			<attribute key="height" value="282"/>
			<attribute key="left" value="549"/>
			<attribute key="top" value="262"/>
			<attribute key="visible" value="0"/>
			<attribute key="width" value="222"/>
		<context name="Books">
			<attribute key="height" value="321"/>
			<attribute key="left" value="179"/>
			<attribute key="top" value="239"/>
			<attribute key="visible" value="0"/>
			<attribute key="width" value="455"/>

Good luck,
