Fixer that tested fine with hypo check but had been used a bit, but not overused according to my past experience, would result in this yellowing. Fresh fixer did not.

The good news is that re-fixing and washing seems to remove the yellow, but doesn't affect the toning.

I now limit fixer use to no more than 15 sheets of 8x10 per quart of film strength (no hardener) Rapid Fixer. I began to see this yellowing at about 20 8x10s.
Refixing removes the yellow?? Really, if that works that would make me a happy man. Since I have a few "yellow" prints now.
