Halo on Sherpa proof when transparency image lies over spot colour

While using CS2
I had a slight problem  with a halo when sending a 4 colour process with a masthead in a Special.
As typical with magazine covers, the subjects head (in Photoshop) popped over the 5th Colour masthead(Indesign) and where we had successfully made the hair edge to fade to transparent, there was still a white halo on the final sherpa proof where it never blended into the 5 th colour correctly.
On the contrary, when we ran the whole cover as CMYK only, the transparency affect worked perfectly.
Not yet seen final press result. PDF looked fine visually, so maybe(hoping here!) that this is sherpa proof not doing its job.
Any suggestions as to why this would happen?

Poor transparency flattening.
