I know but the edges of the focal plane shutter are not fuzzy or curved.

Right, but their movement is erratic. Think of dodging and burning in the darkroom: If you keep your mask moving, you get soft edges.

I'm guessing that if this is a shutter problem, the lead curtain is slowing down and stopping, which is consistent with behavior I've seen in at least one other Minolta shutter (though on that camera it was the trailing curtain).
