[with overused fixer] I've seen similar results on the print edges after KRST toning.
This seems to happen if the fixer has a lot of dissolved silver in it. Taking a print directly from the fix to KRST only works if the fix is squeaky new. The best bet is to use two (or three - the third only needed for KRST) fixer baths. FWIW: putting unprocessed paper in KRST does turn the KRST dark and cloudy - starts out light brown and ends up purple-grey. A black precipitate is formed and the paper goes a dark tan. So it seems this will happen if the fix isn't fix or is completely spent. == Nicholas O.
