you can add your .sla file to the bug tracker (http://bugs.scribus.net; 
and mark it as private if you want it not to be world readable... only 
the scribus devs will be seeing it).

the fact that it went through several upgrades might be the cause of the 
bug, but having a look at the file, can be helpful for figuring out 
what's happening.

sorry that i can give your more help...
