Brian figured out the source of the confusion and miscommunication. It didn't occur to me you might have Easy EC (B2) set to on. In fact, I probably forgot there was such an option since I don't think I've ever used. But, it explains why you actually *were* changing shutter speed and also seeing the meter while you were rotating the main command dial.

Anyway, I hope you are getting things sorted out. The easiest way to do what you are intending might be to just use Manual mode. Set the f-stop you desire, and adjust the shutter speed using the main command dial while using the meter to track the deviation from "normal" exposure. Be sure to turn menu item B2 to Off, and Exposure Compensation (via the top button) is returned to zero.
