Hmmm...I'll have to think back to my original non-sizing
practice to see if I agree but an offlist person said that
he got fisheyes with gum and not casein and both on unsized

Also, because I get it consistently with magenta and not
yellow I think it must have some relation with the coating
but maybe not the gum, maybe the pigment or who knows.  I'll
watch it for a while and see if I can determine any other
factor that might play into it.

Whatever the case, it is a PITA.
