Is there enough tension on the wheel that it is not slipping? Is the wheel hard to turn? Is the film starting correctly? That is, does it sense the tape bulge correctly?
Thanks for the suggestions ic-racer.

It's random. There is enough tension on the distance measuring wheel (or what you call it), such that it's not slipping; I adjusted that some time earlier when it was actually slipping. The camera senses the start of the film just fine.

I think I'll just open her up again and see what happens when transporting a dummy-roll. Nothing lost from just looking.
