Looks to be a coating issue. Must have been a bad batch from foma. Have heard of issues with Arista Edu. I use D-76 with replenishment, plain water, and a hardening fixer. I also squeegee the excess water off the film, Steven.
I just picked up a bunch of Fomapan 100 so I'd have something inexpensive to have fun shooting. I've got 3 lot numbers:

If those lot numbers are what you were shooting I'll be happy to send you a couple of rolls if you'd like.
Strange issue, i really don't want to test films that members complaining about with issues, it can vary from one member to another according to many factors, i remember i did shoot one roll of Fomapan [not sure if 100 or 400] in 120 format and never see any of scratch or dry marks issues.
For the 120 I believe they were suspecting the backing paper and I forget what type it was but maybe the 200 speed T200.

There are a few threads in the archives so you could deduce our own hypothesis.
