Known issue. Not all fonts can be embedded currently. The Times Roman on XP for example is an Open Type TTF and only PDF 1.6 supports OTF natively. Thus, Scribus converts them to postscript outlines in the PDF. This is the most reliable way to ensure there are no font issues when printing the final PDf.
