 the only time you require setting the shutter speed dial to "B" is when
the camera is in your equipment bag. It isn't necessary to have it set
there while you're carrying it around and working.

All it means it that when the camera is in your bag there wont be any
opportunity for the slightest pressure to turn on the meter that's all.
