I saw the issue was already solved, I thought I'd just pop in to tell
the for a magazine I did I wanted to try how Scribus handled objects
across a spread and put an image across two pages (a "false" spread
too, that is NOT the centerfold). It came out perfectly, even better
than expected. (The image was just used as a filler so it didn't
matter if it came out bad, but it didn't.)

The printer received a 1.6 PDF (grayscale) with bleeds, not crop or
trim marks. Their imposition software honored the trim box of the PDF.
