How did you set the bleeds, Peter?

I mentioned in another post that I set the top, bottom and outside
bleeds to 5mm and the inside to 0mm, for a two page spread, but it ended
up with bleed and an overlap region on the inside (middle).

I've spoken to a few printers about this and some seemed to think it
wouldn't be a problem (but maybe I didn't explain it clearly!), and
others weren't sure.
