I guess it really is working, because I just noticed that Synaptic now
lists Scribus-trunk 1.5.0. I installed it and it seems to work OK.
Don't know what happened to 1.4.3 and 1.4.4, but oh well. As long as
1.5.0 doesn't crash a lot I don't mind doing constant saves. And the
automatic backup is set to ten minutes anyway.

Now I have to play with it. :)
