which version of scribus?

a. please upload the .sla document to http://bugs.scribus.net (you may 
mark it as private, then it will be only accessed by the devs)

b. if you know how to do it, you may open the .sla file with a text 
editor, look for the shape 56 and modify its name. it should work, 
then... (first do a backup of your .sla file!)

hope that helps
