"Monitoring" Autofocus on the R1?

Hello everyone! I'm new here, owner of a R1 and quite happy with it... There is one thing that I don't understand though: there is a "single" AF mode and there is a "monitoring" AF mode, which keeps "pre-focussing" - however, as soon as I press the shutter halfway down, the AF will - no matter wheter I'm in monitoring or single mode, focus all over the place before finally getting the subject focused. In other words: I see no advantage in using the "monitoring" mode AT ALL.

Am I missing something?

Thank you!
Gerald.
