It certainly sound like it could be right, but again, it still does not explain why the unprocessed leader would not clear, when other leaders thru the same fixer did, as they should - why would it not clear, as it had not ben developed it should behave like any film leader when checking clearance time. For light to have got in, the only thing I can think of is that somehow the elastic bands around the arms did not seal in my changing bag, but again, I always check this prior to starting and check the lid for correct fit before removing my arms. This is certainly a first for me and does no good for confidence when handling valuable exposures (thankfully these were not of any commervial value!), whatever the cause of the fault. Thanks all for your great efforts to save the day, but all I can say is perhaps several factors cause this as the positive image would suit a light leak, but does not explain why the leader will not clear - even in Hypam 1+1!
