hard to say without seeing the files...

btw, please update to current 1.4svn there is a fix which may help

(not sure, but the patch may already be in the latest .deb for ubuntu.
only for ubuntu).

i didn't have the time to exactly study what the script exactly does,
but i think that we have to check it throughly and see how the PDF
export of scribus can be improved to correctly handle spot colors.

i'm travelling right now and i won't have much time until the weekend
(well, basically, no time from half past four this evening until
thursday -- or friday -- evening!)
... but i will try to do what i can!
