"Clearing" in my experience is related to many factors besides the
negative. Did anything else change? Sometimes certain pigments, for
instance, or pigments with a certain gum, or one or the other with a
particular paper/size combination, is the culprit.
Usually (tho not always), a negative will "clear" if it's developed long
enough... how long was your soak in this one?
