[scribus] Bleed on double-sided document only once?

just found this strange thing: When I let create a double-sided document 
with a bleed of 3 mm on all sides, the bleed on the inner side only 
shows on the left sheet of paper. Then there is the middle marker, and 
no bleed on the right sheet of paper.

The values for paper sizes are computed correctly. At least this is what 
the PDF shows that comes out. There is an overlapping region when you 
push something on the right page too far to the left. So this seems to 
be the bleed, but it isn't shown on screen at least.

Is this a bug or a feature? :-)

I intend to make a book, and the printing service wants to have a 
document with 3 mm bleed, so this is why I stumbled over this one. I 
found it on my Laptop with Scribus 1.4.4., but now I see it's on the 
1.4.2 on the machine I'm sitting now, too.
