Thanks for your reply. OK, my guess was wrong on how this film advance works. No worry. As far as problems goes, this is very minor, barely even qualifying as a problem. Once I see that the film advance is never going to stop, I just pop open the camera back. This stops the film advance and I can continue on as normal. Loading the camera works perfectly as does shot-to-shot film advance.
