I don't know the answer to your problem, but I have a few thoughts.

1) I assume you have the latest stable 1.4.0, released just a
couple days ago. If not, definitely upgrade to it.

2) Can you try a different window manager, or even a different desktop
environment. I would suggest Xfce or Lxde as lightweight desktop
environments. Personally I switched from to Xfce a couple months ago,
after years of Gnome. I have come to like it a lot.

3) Assuming you chose Antix because it is lightweight, you might have
better luck with something like Lubuntu or Xubuntu, since they are more

4) Probably most importantly, check bugs.scribus.net to see if this has
been reported. If not, you should probably file a bug report.
