only after reading greg's post i recognized where the problem is...

... since i've made the big step into scribus at the time pagemaker was
one of the two standards, i've learned to do it the manual way: when
i spot a paragraph which does not flow well, i select it and play with
the glyph's scaling and kerning until i've achieved a reflow which gives
a better result.

if this does not make things better, i usually try to scale the glyphs
for one single (mostly long) word.

if it's still bad enough for me to care about it, i would try to change
some hyphenations and restart with the first step...

i understand that having the software doing it automatically is
so: i have nothing against seeing this implemented in scribus :-)

have a nice evening
