Fedora has Media Writer written in Qt. The cold start runs smooth on
Wayland session.

Apparent that issue happens with linked images on scribus file on all
SVN revision. Opening sla files with embedded images load quicker.

Yes, Fedora 25 does. I opened the sla file with linked images and the
result is the same regardless the session.

$ svn-bisect after 21677
21677 is greater than the working directory maximum 21676!

using before command returns nothing

The current build on the copr
uses Qt 5.7. Scribus cold start load slower but become quick when
reopening. Qt 5.7 applications performs quite well in Wayland session
