No, if you watch closely, the shutter doesn't open until about five seconds AFTER the aperture closes down. ...
Indeed. The aperture closes down, shutter (slit and rivet clearly seen) travels from top to bottom but as soon as the mirror starts to return the aperture closes down even a bit more.

Anyway, after watching the video again, it seems that there is enough time for aperture to settle. Probably it's just some movement of re-opening aperture, especially because it starts at the same time as mirror instead of slowly slipping during the whole time.

Canon EOS 5D is different yet:

The Pentax K10D appears to be rather crude in comparison, but it doesn't attempt the same frame rates as the other two cameras shown here, of course.
