I had the same thing in several versions of scribus (now 1.4.1) on 
Windows XP. I have the automatic text frame on, but on the inserted 
pages I have no text frame! The text frames are at the bottom somewhere 
far after the last page and not on the inserted pages. I always had to 
copy or create a new text frame on the new pages and re-link the frames.
(I just reproduced this behavior now with 6 pages, automatic frames 
turned on, inserted 2 pages after page 2, and got the two frames below.)
