Does anyone know of a tutorial that describes how to use the bleed feature in Scribus? (I'm using 1.4 RC5.) The information on the wiki that I found was related to workarounds for bleeds.

Probably the place to start might be your commercial printer, to get 
advice on the various possible settings. The terminology that you see in 
the PrePress tab of PDF Export is pretty straightforward.

I expect the printer will be able to tell you which he might be able to 
work with and whether there are some he really doesn't need.
