I have read somewhre (can't remember were) that, when you use a 2 reel tank of Patterson or Jobo, and only use one reel to process say 1 35mm film, you better add an empty reel. I think it was to prevent excessive turbulence, but it will also avoid that slippage problem mentioned..
I always try to use the smallest tank possible for processing film, and if not possible (Jobo) add an extra empty reel to the tank.
