it's unlikely that the problems comes from an error in scribus...

i do much support for scribus and i've never heard of a red line in the 

so, there is probably a setting somewhere which is not correctly set... 
hard to say what it is exactly...

i've tried to have a look at the pdf you've attached to your email, but 
it's empty...

i hope that you will be able to find the solution for this issue!
sharing a test .sla and .pdf might help :-)
