[scribus] Little red boxes in text documents

I'm getting those little red boxes throughout text documents I bring
into my work via the "insert text" command, from kwrite in OpenSUSE
linux. They always appear where an apostrophe or a quote mark should be,
and sometimes in empty spaces between sentences. They add extra blank
spaces if ignored, when the document is printed, so I put the cursor to
the left of each, add the punctuation mark needed, if any, and then
delete the red box. If I type a document myself directly into a text
frame, or use the story editor, the red boxes do not appear. They're
harmless and easily removed, I suppose they have a purpose, and in a
very long text document they could be quite annoying. I'm only doing
newsletters and church bulletins, so they're just one more step to be
dealt with.
