Makes me wonder if the film in 35mm was poorly handled by those cutting and packing the film.
The 120 film may have not been cut and packed at the same location as the 35mm, Is the 120 film showing "Yellow"?
I looked at the Agfa Aviphot Chrome 200 Pdf and I see the Yellow layer on top, then the magenta layer in the middle then the cyan layer is closest to the film base, I am thinking if light travels through the film base it would need to pass through the cyan and magenta layers to get to the yellow layer on top.
Perhaps the 35mm cartridges had residual volatile organic compounds inside in the paint that affected the film.
I have used the other Agfa Polyester based films and don't really see much of a light piping problem, I have been careful to load the film in really, really dim light but did load a roll of CR-200 into my Widelux camera in fairly bright light and I did not see much fogging of the first frames, the film was uniformly yellow and the sprocket holes did not show any fogging.
