I am NOT saying you should print to a PDF from Scribus.

You should create a PDF from Scribus (using Scribus own function),
open that PDF in Adobe Reader and then print from Adobe Reader
directly to a PDF (instead of first printing to PS and using command
line tools to convert PS to PDF). Then Adobe Reader would take care of
flattening, right?
