I've noticed this kind of flare with a couple of lenses that were otherwise
flare-proof and I suspect it's because the image of the sun is still within
the lens' image circle but outside the film gate and is reflecting off
something inside the camera body.  In my case it's something in the mirror
chamber, not sure what you'd call the space between the lens and shutter in
a rangefinder camera.
