Ah, thank's, good catch. To me this looks like a bug - why the need for integral size values?

Yes, that works for me as well (minimally sacrificing the page layout design I need to
reproduce). But it's clumsy since the frames where auto-generated so I need to script
a solution that walks the document's text frames and adjusts their size.

I guess I need to look at the sources ...

Hmm, creative workarround :-)
But will this work with the 'use right tab and underscore' workarround for scribus' missing horizontal
lines? (that's my second usecase for right-aligned right tabs).
Thank's a lot,
