Haven't looked in a while, but the last I knew, Scribus was using 
relative paths to find images -- relative from the location where the 
.sla file is saved. What this means is that if you move the .sla you 
mess up these relative paths, even when the images are in the same 
location they were.

At least as a test, you should use the Search function in Manage Images 
to see if you can indeed find some images where they are.

It probably would be good to implement some sort of URI terminology, 
which would also facilitate using Scribus on a network.
