Of course you're right Dave - but even the best fail-safe can be defeated by some idiot.... In my case, it goes like this: on a windy day above a 1000 foot cliff, I decide to try mirror lockup for the first time. Lock the mirror up, press the remote cable release - wow that leaf shutter is really quiet, I didn't hear a thing over the wind. Move the mirror lockup to the unlocked position, and note that the image has not appeared in the viewfinder, so the shutter must have fired. Repeat three times.

Fortunately it was just a view site about a mile from my home, so I can go back any time.
Cheers and thanks for all the encouragement,
