Subject: [Leica] M3 DS crank

I have the camera two days and find that after I complete the advance to the
next frame, while there is a lot of resistance to the crank turning any
further, if I exert a hint more pressure it turns. The odd thing about it is
that when the shutter is released it restores itself to the correct position
and is ready to be cocked again for the next frame. I called Leica and was
told that  "probably something is wearing out". Anybody have a similar
experience with their M3? I can live with it the way it is but worry that
it'll get worse..... Kind of reminds me of my old chevy's clutch!!
