i wonder what the best way is to solve such problems.

as far i understand it, scribus is using libreoffice / openoffice
hyphenation files.

so, i suppose that you should try if those cases are correctly taken
care in libre/open office.

if the error also happens in libre/open office i think that you should
find the way to correctly report it to the maintainers of the
hyphenation files.

if the error does not happen there, well, we will have to check what
the error in scribus is...

have a nice weekend
