Of course, I had the same thing happen with a bottle of DDX.
I guess it works in a high volume (school/demonstrations, etc) environments but for us mere mortals it's probably not worth the trouble. DDX is not quite as bad but I also don't use it often enough to justify buying it. At the end of the day, that's why Rodinal and HC110 still rule. I do like glycin based developers for certain applications though and TFX-2 seems to have good shelf life and it certainly performs well.
