Given the changes between rc5 and rc6 versus layout, some differences are to be expected.
Those differences are significant in some case. A few computations previously performed
using font ascent are now performed using real char ascent and hence can produce result
differences vs vertical position. In case of doubt, please tell them to submit test files.

Also remember that until 1.4.0 final is out, we reserve ourself (the Scribus team) the
right to make any change we believe necessary, including in the text layout algorithms.
Consequently text layout stability is not guaranteed between release candidates.
