Mamiya RZ67 Pro II and 75mm shift lens

I've recently purchased a used RZ67 camera and also a 75mm shift lens. A fantastic camera and a fantastic lens.

But....

I am having a weird 'issue' with the lens. Basically, you are only supposed to be able to fire this lens using a cable release connected to the leaf shutter on the lens itself. When you press the shutter release on the camera body, this will raise the mirror. To trip the shutter, you must then use the cable release.

In my situation, however, I seem to be able to use the button on the body to both raise the mirror and also trip the leaf shutter in the lens (I don't have to use a cable release at all).

Does anybody else have this setup who can test, or does anyone have any suggestions as to why this might be happening?
