Another problem with these queries is that when you reply to the
originator, Cc the scribus list, a further response from the
originator is directed towards the responder, not the scribus list.

I will try changing the reply to field configuration

I do have it installed. It turns out the problem is with a ghostscript
Since scribus depends on ghostscript, I can see why scribus fails.

If I run gs  form the command line, I get

gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dNODISPLAY -dBATCH -dDELAYBIND -g2448x3168 -r288 
-dTextAlphaBits=4 -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 -c 0 0 translate
/sdb4/Home/jd/Misc/pdf/NavaratriBrahmotsvam2009-final.pdf -c flush cfile
closefile quit
Fontmap entry for Fontmap.local ends prematurely!  Giving up.

Fontmap.local is provided by the ghostscript package, which is

$ locate Fontmap.local

So, I really do not understand why gs bitches about it's own font!!!
