I've found this problem on scribus version, and 
1.3.6svn under windows.

I made e file contains multiple image fame PS/EPS/PDF.
Save it... close scribus.... reopen scribus.... reopen saved file....

Scribus progress bar goes slowly until a value (sometimes 20%, others 
60%, oters 90%)
and stop to increase his value. Scribus take 50% of cpu but don't do 
I try to wait 24 hours.....

It seams that scribus invoke ghostscript (V 8.70), ghostscript die and 
scribus wait infinitely
for ghostscript data.

If file has some image frames contains PS/EPS/PDF graphics I need to 
kill and reopen
scribus 2/3 times before be able to reopen file. If file has many image 
frames with ps data
I can't reopen file anymore.

Same files reopenend on scribus on linux works fine....

I think this is a bus in win32 porting of scribus.
