So far, it worked (Scribus 1.5.2svn) the paragraph and Space, Em Space etc. Jumped on the Baseline Grid.

Same with r21106 (preboxes) so its not a boxes regression.

In the example, the baseline is a bit less high than half the height of characters. That's why this behaviour can possibly take place : empty line only jumps one baseline, not 2 as other characters require.

It could be argued that this is not a bug (except for the change of behaviour) since why should an empty line jump 2 baselines ? Why not create a twice higher baseline in case you dont want such behaviour to happen ?

Not sure.
