Please have look at bugs/RFEs 1475, 2897, 3159, 3094, 1579, 577, 1130, 2576, 
1108, 417, and 1155. The short answer is: the issues with hyphenation are 
already known and will be addressed by the developers.

If you don't want a word to be hyphenated, you can remove the hyphen when you 
see Scribus' suggestion. To add hyphens manually, you can hit Ctrl+- in 1.2x 
and Ctrl+Shift+- in 1.3x. You can do this in text frames, no need to switch 
on SE.
