I have only seen the reaction with fixer give anything close to what you are talking about. I can't image the paper being the problem, unless it was just taken out of the fixer. Since it was washed that is not it. What about the distilled water. You say that you use it. Are you sure about the bottles that you have? pH test? Fresh? Used to make other chems without problems?
