I mainly do E-6 and often get unmounted rolls.
The pro place I use (dip and dunk) are flatter than the one hour place I 
ocassionally use (roller
transport). I only use the one hour place when I'm in a bind, as the do Sat. 
processing and the
other place doesn't. Maybe I need to test C-41. (actually, I'm not sure what 
kind of processor the
pro lab uses for C-41, come to think of it).
Of course, curl aside, the one place is a joke, quality control wise, at least 
for E-6. I can turn in
even something simple, like PowerPoint shot image and get different color 
balance/density for
every day, and even bigger diffs from week to week. Same price both places, too.
