Yes, too bad it isn't like the Nikon motor drive which has a "S" or "C"
selector button for single or continuous exposures. But my Nikon
motor is a 25 year old design at least.  The Nikon only winds when
RELEASING the button when set for single exposures.

I was once told of the difference 'tween a motor drive and a motor
winder, but Leica seems to have blurred the difference.
