That is the situation that, many years ago, made me a complete convert to just puttinghte film on the xray machine belt and not worrying one iota about it. The TSA agent was quite willing to hand inspect my sheet film holders but felt the need to pull the darkslides to do so. Can't fault the kid... it wasn't his fault for not knowing about old camera gear.
