What are you using to view the files?  Evince has problems with some graphics
- they come out as black squares.  Your best option is to use acroread to view
pdf files.

My experience with Scribus has shown me that a bad font or a bad graphic can
cause unknown errors in a pdf file.  On the other hand, I use ps2pdf all the
time to create pdf files from Scribus output for imposition purposes and as
long as the fonts and the graphics are up to snuff, everything works
wonderfully well.
