Shouldn't have to use "bulb" mode as described here. The camera has a manual sensor cleaning option (found in in the system menu), which is meant for just this purpose. It pretty much does the same thing (locks the mirror up and the shutter open so you can access the sensor), but has the added safety factor of not letting you do it UNLESS you are using a FRESH battery. (Because if the battery were to run low or die while you were rooting around in the sensor chamber, the mirror and/or shutter might close onto your tools and severely damage the camera.)
