At least in theory, either should be able to open each others files.
If there is trouble, the one with 1.3.8svn can try editing the SLA file 
like this:

<SCRIBUSUTF8NEW Version="1.4.0.rc5">
<SCRIBUSUTF8NEW Version="1.3.8.svn">

then save the file.

Whoever is using 1.4.0.rc3 should have no problem.
