have done this with some post production problems and sometimes can help ..
just a thought ... hope it helps ..
why I suspect that wouldn't work is because of this, the phase relationship between the direct flute mic and the flute bleed into the cello mic are different, so flipping the polarity won't cancel it out, maybe it might be possible to use some kind of In Between Phase device like an IBP or the Colortone plug in, but I doubt it.
