I followed your reattachment advice, loaded a dummy roll and everything went smoothly. But who knows what will happen when I shoot a new roll tomorrow!

Today when I engaged MLU, the mirror didn't move immediately, there was a lag of about a second. Then when the mirror did move, the aperture blades opened fully rather than staying at f/22 as set. Then when I pressed the shutter, the mirror this time dropped immediately, even though the shutter dial was set to a second. That second pause when I pressed the MLU button led me to believe MLU made the exposure, as it was the only time in the process when there was a pause in the camera mechanism.
