A font does not (as far as I understand) only have a name, it also has a
type and a version.

This would mean fonts with the same name can be available as for example
both True Type and Open Type (which I think Scribus would consider to be
"different" fonts), and there are even different version of fonts shipped
with different versions of Windows.

Maybe the dialog in Scribus should be better on telling the difference?
