I assume your washing technique is along the lines set by Ilford? I hesitate to use their process ver batem as it seems a little on the liberal side. However Iím sure it works for most. No. I donít believe having some residual hypo in the fibers would cause a reverse reaction with the selenium complexes. If it did something like that I would expect some further evidence such as black powder precipitate on the print surface and a reduction of the overall density especially in the lighter gray areas (and possibly some mottling). Check your upper platen: did anything transfer there?
