We've seen an issue with the cursor not changing when one wants to 
resize a dialog or even Properties. I just tried this out with 
on XP and saw no problem with frames, as long as they were selected.

Not sure what this "sneak up" is supposed to suggest. My recommendation 
would be to never sneak up on a Scribus frame, you know, they have 
feelings too. Do you like someone sneaking up on you in the shower, 
poking you with a cursor as if your some piece of beef on a barbecue 
grill? I think not.
