Christoph, which Qt ? eg rpm -qi qt3

I can't replicate here with Suse 10.0 and Qt 3.3.5-28

Qt is 3.3.4-11.3

Hmmm, that's strange. I closed the weird document, opened a new one and this time it worked once, but for the second master page I got two copied frames. In the previous doc, I had up to five copies of the same frame.

OK, more weirdness. In a new doc, I got 3 frames after copy'n' paste. After deleting two of them and applying the "" script to the remaining one, the frame was duplicated and the copy shifted to the right. Also, only draws horizontal lines. I think I'll remove my cvs directory and start a fresh checkout. More reports after rebuilding from that one.

Did a fresh checkout, installed in a new directory. No improvement.

Still unable to replicate here.

Craig, can try to repeat this several times, i. e. creating some master paster pages and constantly pasting the frame from the clipboard?

I think u need to come up with an exact procedure because I just created 5 new MPs, and pasted randomly an object from a normal page and master page into 4 or 5 new ones.. I only get what I expect to paste.

Well, there's hardly more to describe than what I already did. The behaviour doesn't always occur, but sooner or later it will -- here.

Could it be a problem of the clipboard? I just tried again and got six frames copies from there.

Update: the issue turns up with all copied objects once scribus is run for a longer time. I still can't tell the point at which it all starts.

The saga continues: After playing a bit with a fresh document, Scribus didn't copy and paste anything. Exception: right click > drag > copy worked. Afer noticing this on the canvas, I copied again, switched to a master page, tried to insert the copy: nothing. After switching back to the canvas, all pages were invisible, I could only see the forms I had created before. It was necessary to insert a page to bring the other pages back.

christoph_s, how does it look on your SuSE10? Just in case ... If SuSE10 works ok, i think it would be wasted time to debug a distro/qt version, that will be history very soon.

Please leave this open. I recall having seen the issue with SuSE 10.0 too but I haven't seen it for quite a while now. Maybe it's solved with, maybe not.
