it's a general issue, not related to the scribus.

- file > import > vector.
- click on the top left corner
- the rectangle will be in the top left corner.

the same happens with a pdf created by inkscape (rectangle-02.pdf) and by scribus (rectangle-03.pdf)

opening the svg or pdf files (instead of file > import gives the right result.

according to jean, it seems that the issue is related to the fact that "import" is grouping the shapes.
