I agree with Keith here. Eliminating the water bath/rinse after the developer and prior to the first clearing solved a lot of clearing problems for me.

Not using a water bath after developer also applies to kallitype printing in my experience as well.

And yes as Matt mentions, 5 min development also helps a lot.
