I have 000 bleeds everywhere I can see that selection, and have used a couple different printers (and I don't know whether the printer selected at the time of creation of a pdf matters or not). How can I change this?

I presume you're using 1.3.7 or higher, since there is no such 
possibility in 1.3.3.x. It would help to let us know where and how you 
have made setting changes. There is the Pre-Press tab in PDF Export, of 
course, and then the PDF section in Preferences/Document Setup, under 
Pre-Press. You could potentially make a change in Preferences that would 
not apply to the current document but rather future ones. Look under 
Document Setup to see the settings for the actual current document.

The other thing is verifying that you do indeed have bleed, as opposed 
to a situation in Adobe Reader, where if you let it, it will shrink your 
output when it's printed.
