Sorry, change Reproducibility to random, after moving toolbar a bit it starts to hide with main windows.
But don't close this bug, I'll play around with it, there is some issues, f.e. sometimes toolbars are not restored when restoring main Scribus windows.

I manage to reproduce this bug stably (so please keep it status as "always").
Tested on 1.3.6, 1.3.7, 1.5.0. - it persists. Moreover, on picture you can see three toolbars in front of all other windows simultaneously.

Steps to reproduse:
- run Scribus;
- drag toolbar to make it float;
- close Scribus;
- run Scribus - toolbars appear on their previous positions;
- minimize Scribus window or switch to other app - floating toolbars float in front of all windows.
If you move toolbars after you run Scribus, they will start to hide/show together with Scribus window. But there is still some unpredictable behavior - randomly they won't pop up with Scribus.

And one more related bug (may should be posted separately) - when switching to Scribus window by clicking on GNOME panel Scrubus pops up, but doesn't become active. It happens only if you have moved one of floating toolbars.
When all toolbars are docked there is no bug.

Confirming with 1.4.5.svn (19364) and 1.5.0.svn (19365) on FreeBSD + XFCE.
(Should be the same on openSUSE + KDE)
