[scribus] Text Kerning/Spacing Bug

I'd love to have a newer Windows version.  I've narrowed the bug to mouse selection.  If the text insertion bar is moved to the adjusted characters using arrow keys, the Properties dialog updates with the correct values.  However, clicking the mouse to set the insertion bar doesn't update the dialog.

  seems to be working correctly in 1.5svn... so the bug may have been corrected if the successive versions.
