    If my thinking is right, you could add a layer of material to the rollers, leading to each revolution causing more linear film travel? Maybe a layer of tape at the ribbed area on each side?

    Extra layer would work as a stop gap before a cla. I use this method for my super ikonta which was designed with slightly thicker film rolls in mind.

    I see the same effect on a GW690II, GW670III, and GSW690III, but have never seen the gap go down to zero.

    My two Fuji cameras (GW670 II & GSW690 III) do the same thing, but never really drastically close. I always attributed it to my being a little paranoid about whether or not I advanced the film and would check by putting a little pressure on the advance lever.
