I think it is counting them individually. The number the site shows is about 20% higher than I'd expect from the file number. I've always kept numbering at continuous and the cards have only been used in this camera.

OK, I now have the answers to the question:

1. A single shot with EFC counts as one shutter actuation.

2. A single shot without EFC counts as two shutter actuations.

3. Multi-shot modes count as multiple shutter actuations. For example, panoramas without EFC generate over 60 shutter actuations!
