Thats by design. When you drag'n'drop a file onto an already existing doc it is assumed you want to insert a clipart, so only the first page is imported. Same for "File->Import->Get Vector File". With "File->Open" or dropping the file onto an empty Scribus window the whole file is imported.

Franz, thanks for the explanation, I see the reasoning behind it. The only thing is that I'm sure there are folks who don't realize that, like myself. How do we make it clear to them what is happening ?
What if Scribus, in the situation where drag-n-drop or "File->Import->Get Vector File" are used, lets the user know something way less verbose and exaggerated but communicates the following:
'Hey, I checked this file for you and guess what there is more info in here than just a single clip-art page! How do you want me to proceed? Do you want to import the whole file or just the first page as a clip-art object? Or Ho about you choose which single page or object you want to import?

This issue for me is reminiscent of #11894
