Oh, come on, Nicholas: how likely do you think it is that students would
be using these antiquated cameras?
Besides, I have an Exa, and it does indeed have a vertical shutter, but
it's definitely not a focal plane shutter. It's one of the weirdest
shutters I've ever seen, and even if it malfunctioned would not leave
that kind of an artifact within the exposed frame.

Read his post; he said the effect was within the frame only, implying no
fogging outside the frame, therefore not a light leak problem.
I hope that in a few years it [Wikipedia] will be so bloated that it
will simply disintegrate, because I can't stand the thought that this
thing might someday actually be used as a serious reference source.
Because in its current form, it's not to be taken seriously at all.
