I can confirm this with release r21637. Seems not to be fixed with the CTL merge. By checking this I found another new bug (0014455).

the problem is not about the end paragraph (that's only a symptom of it…)

i'm not a coder, but as i understand it, the source of the problem is the 'default style font' of the text frame.
in the .sla file i read:
<StoryText>
                <DefaultStyle FONT="Hoefler Text Regular"/>
                <ITEXT FONT="Liberation Mono Regular" CH="test, test, test, test, test, test, "/>
                <para/>
                <ITEXT FONT="Liberation Mono Regular" CH="test, test, test, test, test, "/>
                <para/>
                <ITEXT CH="test, test, test, test, test, test, test, "/>
                <trail/>
            </StoryText>

do we really need this 'default style font'?
…or could we:
- tell scribus to use the 'default paragraph style' as long as nothing else is defined?
- have a starting tag for a new paragraph style, wich would be copied while adding a paragraph break?

…just a thought of a layman…

for text, scribus has too many defaults:
- text tool default in the document settings
- default paragraph style
- default character style
- default style for the specific frame
- default style for the current paragraph.

for character formatting we should only have:
- default character style
- default style for the current paragraph
(and a default style for a specific frame if the frame has been emptied)

everything more is only a problem waiting to happen...
