Thanks for the suggestion John H and Joel. I did agitate and rap the tank, following the instructions that came with the tank (It's a new Paterson which I have not used before). I reckon I have dust on the negs and I'll see what they look like after I have washed them again.

I have not had this before...

This is negative, right? Could the film have lay upon itself and trapped bubbles? Did you rap the tank on the table after the first agitation to jog the bubbles off the film?

I *think* bubbles could create white spots when positivized by the scanner, but I would think they might be more like translucent rings or mottling. If they are like bright white chunks of debris, I'd think it's some sort of contamination after the development process, i.e., dust.
