I was given a 3 page PDF file, but I wanted to impose the pages as two pages
per sheet and partially resized and cropped (with an image frame).

I knew someone would say this :-)
I did not scan anything. So, the input format being PDF is out of the
equation, optimal or not.
Plus, Scribus allows me to import PDFs into a document and then generate a PDF
from there: seems to be a valid Scribus use case.

Why does it only affect printing then?
Onscreen both sides look perfect, and on paper one of them looks awful. It's
so different that I doubt it is only "sensitivity".
Furthermore, if I print to postscript from Acrobat and convert back to PDF
with ps2pdf it is fine again.... the "sentivity" vanishes.

Thanks for the general advice but I think this is a bug. Don't you agree?
Now, whose bug is this?
I have already solved the problem.
Still I am reporting this as it may be a Scribus issue. Could as well as be a
bug somewhere along the cups+ghostscript path, since we have at least a
report of printing w/o problems on windows.
