No, it will be fine: it's just a mechanical link where a pin on the darkslide pushes on a slide to allow the back to be released - it does not impact on any other part of the camera: it's just a simple mechanical interlock. You'll see when you get the slide. My guess is that the bit that the pin pushes out the way is either broken or stuck in the "in" position.
One of my SQ-A backs has the same problem, but the other two are fine so it may be a basic design fault.
