Summary0009779: Compounding column margin /w image contour
DescriptionWhen I set the distance of text from the side(s) of a column inside a text frame, I expect that distance to be independent of everything else.

Also, if I understand correctly, if one wants to give a picture a buffer to stop text wrapping around it very close, you just enlarge its contour line and set that for text wrapping.

Here's the problem, Scribus is adding the distance of the column margins to the contour line with images that "push" up against a text frame. It needs to handle these separately.

See attachment for example, note how the text is further away from the image than intended.

See the link under "Additional Information" to a thread on the new forum for a image that shows how other DTP software doesn't do this. Discussion on it there is welcome.

Please delete all my patches from this report.
Full and (as usual with big hope) working solution will be uploaded to report 0009436 "wrong text formating - text extend margins or columns".
Both issues are placed in Page_Item::layout() function and are very related, so both will be fixed by one patch.
