Canonet QL17 GIII focus exposure coupling

According to my understanding the GIII will couple the exposure to the focus position when a flash unit is attached.

My GIII seems to couple the exposure (as indicated by the needle) to the focus all the time that the aperture ring is in 'A' position, flash or no flash. The light falling on the metering cell also seems to affect the exposure.

It seems to me that the camera thinks that a flash unit is attached.

My questions:

* This is incorrect behaviour, right?
* How does the camera detect a flash unit?

The problem is not to do with the top cover, because even with that removed the behaviour is the same.
