Hi Laurent, It's normal for shutter to retract when magazine is removed (as safety measure). When you put magazine back to the body, then press button in middle of advance crank and advance. That way you are not waisting one frame of the film, but be sure that you keep dark slide in magazine until shutter is in cocked position.
Sorry, no idea about your second question. Sounds strange??? Are you talking about button with red dot in the middle of advancing crank? After exposure you should be able to advance film with out any additional operations or button pressing.
And sometime that huge shutter will be not retracted and it's scary feeling, especially knowing that is now almost impossible to fix it.
