In general, the film indexing is handled in the back. There is an interlock - a tubular protrusion with a pin inside that couples from the back to the body to "communicate" film wind status. There could possibly be dirt or a bent pin in that interface. Trying another back would be the next step. If the problem follows the back, a CLA of the back ought to fix things. Unfortunately, a CLA might cost more than the back -- although another back could be just another source of problems.
My first back (on an SQ-A) just happily wound the entire roll of film through without stopping. They are nice cameras, but the youngest are 15 to 20 years old, and they are quite complex mechanically.
