Well, this happens. (This is how the Scribus list is.) And it also happens
that since we have a Render Frame in Scribus (ie a Frame that allow to
interpret and render the code from other applications, not only TeX),
somehow there is going to be such derivative thread, one bringing to the
other. Nothing wrong here, really. Plus, when you know just how weak is
Scribus in the typographic field (from the professional stand point at
least), then it's nothing to be surprised when you read some posts about any
flavors of TeX. This is all knitted pretty tightly.

Yes it was. And it slipped and this also happens ! :)

Consider this as a parenthesis.

Cheers !
