[scribus] spot colors in PDF

Hi, one question about color management in Scribus.
(sorry I sent it with wrong email address, please forget the one waiting 
for moderation)

I'm using 2 direct tones, no CMYK.
in the Print Preview, everything (text and images) is separated 
correctly (no CMYK).
But when generating the PDF (without the option to convert spot colors 
into process colors), all texts and vectors are in direct tones, but the 
images are back to CMYK.
Of course, no way on Linux to check this, the printer told us the file 
was not good, and we had to switch on MacOS to check with Acrobat Pro 
that the color channels were not good.

Is there somehow a bug in the PDF generation?
