Subject: [Leica] any opinions as to what went wrong?

I've just dried and scanned my first roll of Neopan 1600 developed in XTol 
1:3, and the result is bizarre and unusable. My best guess as to what went 
wrong is that I didn't mix the XTol enough and there were still particles 
floating around in it, but, in any event, if you'd be willing to look at 
this 200KB image that is a closeup of the scan, and express an opinion as 
to what those white things are, I'd be grateful. They are not dust: I 
looked at both surfaces of the negative under a microscope with strong 
sidelighting, and no dust was visible. (The object in the foreground is the 
back end of a seagull, and you are looking at actual pixels as they came 
out of the LS4000)

that's an ell followed by a one in the filename.
