FWIW, I built scribus with stock Cygwin 1.5.18-1.  I'm almost certain 
this has to do with Qt itself, not with any individual program.  If 
you're interested in helping look into this, I'd say to grab the 
qt3-3.3.4-2-src package and try to find the problem there.

Wrt what I said earlier about all C++ Qt programs being affected, that 
appears to be not 100% true: xxdiff (yes, also available at Cygwin 
Ports) does not show this message; perhaps it doesn't use Qt threads.

In any case, I can't do it this minute, but I hope that early next week 
I can look into this further.
