complaining on the mailing list won't make the topic advance much...

making sure that there is a bug report for it may already be a step
further (most of all if there is no bug report for it, yet... but i
don't think it's the case...).

finding somebody volunteering to work on a patch for it is the best way
to get it fixed very soon!
(anybody who can program can write patches for scribus! and there is
for sure somebody affected by this bug who knows somebody who can
program! in this case you will probably need somebody who can program
on os x)


p.s.: i checked if it's reported... it is...
i let you guess who reported it :-)
