The basepoint is simply the reference location for the information in 
X,Y,Z in Properties. Changing the basepoint should not change the 
position of the frame itself, so something is not right. Since I've 
never seen such behavior, it's hard to know what is going on.

You might try uploading the file to bugs.scribus.net to see if others 
see the same issue with it.
