Oddly enough I had a similar experience with Nacco D76 1:1 and APX100. 
The grain was dissolved to the extend that the image appeared soft.
It probably didn't help that the picture was shot with a  Noctilux @ f1 
in a low contrast situation...shutter speed was high enough to allow for
a sharp image. Rodinal has become by developer of choice for these type
of films, but there are always exceptions. Plus-X with D76 1:1 and a 
Summicron-DR is magical.
