We have not been fixing issues in 1.4.x for some time. There will be no more releases of 1.4.x. We're working on getting 1.6.0 ready from 1.5.x . Feel free to switch already to 1.5.x. Other than that, I can only suspect a local system or desktop issue, or perhaps simply an old code issue that we cannot fix.

Even now in the website it is the text written in the download page. {Currently the stable branch is the 1.4.x series. Download links for 1.4.x installers are available, click the button below. Use this branch if you want to work with a thoroughly tested software without any unpleasant surprises.} I am surprised this 1.4.8 release is thoroughly tested? The issue reported is a genuine easy to reproduce but i am worried to use the unstable 1.5.x release.

"i am worried to use the unstable 1.5.x release. "
Do not worry about it! It contains errors, but the stability cannot be complained about!

Like I say, this is unlikely a Scribus 1.4.8 issue, but a desktop interface issue or system issue. 1.5.8 is more stable than 1.4.8.

I don't think it would be a desktop interface issue or system issue. Am using adobe photoshop and pagemaker long time but not even see this kind of issues. The scribus issue is not the whole application freeze but the page which we are currently using gets affected(not responding to any inputs). Once i close the page itself(not the application) and reopen the same page the issue goes away. This issue can be seen in text frame inside image frame as well.
