When you created the PDF, what setting did you have on the Color tab of
the export dialog?  I've found that Screen/Web is the proper choice
here.  Note that this setting doesn't have anything whatsoever to do
with image compression, just the color model used.  If you had it set to
Printer, try Screen/Web and see if that doesn't help.  If you continue
to have problems, I'd recommend the excellent Scribus mailing list.
