Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you're asking for, but I opened 
properties on the upper text frame (the one on top of the other text 
frame) and picked the Text parameter section on the upper text frame and 
unhid the "Columns & Text Distances" section. I altered the Top, Bottom, 
Left, and Right parameters to taste and I produced a gap change inside 
the shape of the upper text frame.

I'm not sure if this mailing list allows attachments, but I've added a 
small Scribus file (from version 1.4.4) to this post illustrating what 
I've tried to describe above.
