Well, there is a promising insight. Thanks.

Progress: an 18-frame roll worked okay; spacing was uneven, but there were no overlaps. Maybe more use is the key. Activity and friction should help that sensing device clean itself a little, if it is the problem. I just loaded a full 36 frame roll and have my fingers crossed.
Uneven w/o overlapping is pretty much normal for the MZ/ZX models. I used to have MZ-M, ZX-10 & MZ-3. They all had the same behaviour. I think it was due to their design. The Z-1p I had however, was very accurate (a really well designed and made camera if you got the chance to peep inside).

That's interesting, and yeah, it's no big deal, easy enough to adjust for when scanning a strip of negs.

... a way to check if it's the motor or the little reader device. How does it sound while it's rewinding the film?...
I hadn't noticed anything during rewind -- will keep my ears open at the end of this roll. The sound of frame advance is a quick high pitched thweep, for what it's worth.
