[Scribus] PDF Export Fonts problem still there ??

I've been following the fonts embedding issue with PDF's (ie when the 
font contains too high a number of glyphs) (in fact I reported on the 
issue, sorry I cant find the Bug Ref Number).

But I was under the impression that this was fixed in CVS or 1.3.4

But using Malex's latest builds (3/May 2007), & 1.3.4 (27 May 
2007) of Ubuntu packages, I am still getting issues where many usual 
fonts can't be embedded into PDF's, only outlined. IE Arial Regular is 
embedded ok, Times New Roman Regular won't embed and Arial Bold won't 
embed. (These tests were made on the 1.3.4 version). These are very 
regularly used fonts, that will cause many users problems. Excellent PDF 
export is one of Scribus's best and well known features.

I need to get proper font embedding working as I have Scribus files that 
the derived PDF's will go to the printers soon. Are there any 
workarounds or further information for this?

Kind regards
