Does anyone have experience with using the R1C1 flash with mirror lock up mode?

The problem I have is that the flash goes off twice, once when the mirror lock up is activated and again when the shutter is released. I would expect that the flash would only go off once.

I am using the camera and flash for focus stacking, so this is a waste of flash life and battery life.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help.
