I inquired some time ago about this here and got the information that
the problem is already fixed in 1.5.x. Unfortunately, there are some
people like me who cannot run 1.5.x at the moment.

It is this problem:
<MASTEROBJECT OwnPage="1" PTYPE="2" XPOS="596.06362992126" ......
LAYER="0" BOOKMARK="0" NEXTITEM="-1" BACKITEM="-1">
The problem is very easy to spot. PFILE contains an impossible path
as /usr/home is already the root of the file system.
I was told that the problem is caused by links in the path.
I am not able to avoid links in the path as we use links all over the
place in our file systems.

I highly agree with you here. After digging a bit in the scribus code,
I decided that I could fix the problem much faster this way. As there
is a fix in the coming version already included, there is no need for
fixing the code when my program does the job.
With other words: I simply needed the fix for my current work as fast
