Don't use OS X but maybe this will help. In my
home directory I have a subdirectory
named ~/.scribus
There are two subdirectories: prefs140.xml and
prefs150.xml. So preferences are separated. This
was set up automatically. 

Another trick: set up a second user identity
like "kunda2" on your computer for use with
Scribus 1.5.0 only.
