Because I was focussing at infinite as moving the bellows out more focussing closer brought the focus closer. The focus was already too close in the VF with the bellows set to infinite.
Yes it should be out of focus, but the focus should be further than the object not closer as it was in the developed neg.

I'll try to see if I can find a piece of ground glass
edit: it appears I brought the other back with me today which has a roll of unfinished roll of Tri-X in it.. damnit. I'll finish it off and try it with that one anyway. IF it is indeed the revolving back it'll happen on both backs.
