[scribus] Bug entering letters with ^ ?

first of all, thank you for this great software! I've just managed to
create my first magazine for a local group of Esperanto speakers here in

I'm not sure if I've found a bug:

in the language Esperanto we use a lot of uncommon characters, like ŝ ĝ ĥ ŭ
and ĵ.
I'm entering these characters by pressing the key above TAB (^) followed by
the letter I need. So pressing ^ + s results in ŝ.

This also works in Scribus except the letter ĵ / Ĵ. I can't insert this
letter, neither in the text-frame directly nor in the story editor. When I
copy&paste this letter from my favourite texteditor into the story editor,
it gets displayed but the font is rendered as a light square.

At first I thought it's a font problem but as I also can't enter this
letter, I think the problem is related to Scribus. Using the same font in
OpenOffice renders ĵ / Ĵ correctly.

My Scribus version is 1.4.3. with Ubuntu GNU / Linux 14.04.

Thank you in advance and best regards,
