Hi Rob,
        As you may have read, I now realize these mysterious 
"bubbles" are in undeveloped film and thus are not a product of 
developing quirks. I'm sorry for making such a misleading statement.
        That doesn't make your unfortunate experience with 100VS any 
less annoying - it just probably doesn't apply in this case. I also 
got some strange colours from 100VS, plus I found it "grainy", and 
haven't used it since.
        I do wonder if the relative freedom from "bubbles" shown by 
Provia 100F compared to other slide films I've looked at contributes 
to the smooth scans obtained from P 100F.

        Yes, the bubbles are in the thin outside protective layer 
over the emulsion, not in the heavy base layer.
