Summary0011929: FontSample script pushes the Scribus main window to the foreground under KDE
DescriptionIf the FontSample script is being run, it's impossible to work in another program/program window because the Scribus main window always pushes to the foreground. It's even impossible to stop the Script from being cancelled, because the Scripter dialog is pushed to the background. The only way to stop the script from being executed is to kill the Scribus process.

This is new in 1.5.0svn and works as expected in 1.4.3.

Here is what I can see:
Yes, Scribus is persistently updated and therefore brought to the foreground as the script runs.
It is possible to use another desktop, but if you don't have something running in the other desktop, you will get switched back to the one with the script running. (I'm writing this note now with the script still running in another desktop, so you can see that I can run other software).

I'll have to look at the script to see if it's repeatedly updating the screen or what -- that may be the issue. Perhaps this is something about how Qt5 handles this script.

I'm not able to figure out why it's doing this. This is a very long and complicated script, hard to pick apart.

The short term "answer" might be just to insert a warning in the tk dialog that if you are running the script for a large number of fonts, Scribus may behave this way.

jurajF, if you have a moment, could you look in to this ?
