No, don't bother to file a bug. I've noticed sometimes that when you
copy from the webpage of the wiki, the indentations can get messed up.
Try this:

Go to the webpage and select the tab that says View Source. Now go down
to the script and highlight from the line that says:

#!/usr/bin/env python

to the line that says:

scribus.messageBox("Finished", "Done!",scribus.ICON_NONE,scribus.BUTTON_OK)

then copy that, and paste to a file, save and run in Scribus.
If that doesn't work, let me know and I can just send you the file directly.
