This is fascinating, but way over my head, I'm afraid. Should I conclude
that Scribus is the culprit, as it has produced an invalid pdf file? Perhaps
I should fiel a buf report with the Scribus people. But does anyone know why
XeTeX and pdfLaTeX are oblivious to the pdf format violation? Is that
relevant for a better description of the problem?
