Interval shooting with K5-II: counter acts strange

This weekend I was happily timelapsing with my K5-II, but I noticed something strange. The camera takes almost double the shots its is supposed to take. The counter sometimes just jumps back to the previous number: e.g. this: 409 - 408 - 409 - 408 - 407 - 406 - 407 or something like that. Has anyone else noticed this problem? My firmware is up to date.

Welcome to the forum.

Please update your firmware. (If already done, refresh your firmware after you reset your camera - Removing the lens).
