Default G1 question about the shutter

Ever since I bought the G1 I have noticed (what to me) is a strange behavior regarding the shutter. Some times when I depress the shutter release button, there is this quick double-click sound (shutter sound) and the picture is taken but some other times, the double-click has a longer silent gap in between. It's almost like shooting at a very low shutter speed even though I'm shooting at 1/1000+. Some times it seems it has to do with the FL (longer sound when shooting close-ups?) but I can't really reproduce the behavior consistently to make that determination. Do any of you know whether this is normal or a result of a particular setting (not described in the manual)? Thanks.

I can't reproduce what you are saying.

Yes, there is the normal double click, but not with a variable time between the first click and the opening of the first curtain.

(for those who don't know, the first click is the shutter curtains "setting", ready to fire. This covers the sensor so the shutter can work correctly)

Thanks, dnas. Like I said, I can't consistently reproduce the longer gap between the clicks. Just to make it clear, I'm not talking 3+ sec gap...it's just obviously longer in some cases. Perhaps it has to do with the sensor orientation feature when I shoot vertically.
