    Are you certain that's a developing error?

    Did you have the proper amount of chemistry in the tank? It looks like one end was not in chemistry. Please check the following:
    Are the curved grooves on each side both facing in, towards each other? Or are the straight grooves or one curved and one straight sides facing in?

    Are either the front or rear release bars on the Film Clip broken?

    Is this a crop??

    I say that because the sheets are inserted lengthwise into the combi holder. ie portrait.

    Which means either the left or right side is light struck.
    What that dark area to the right is I don't know.

    Poorly seated holder?? bellows issue?? Lens board not seated??

    Doesn't appear like developing error "only" to me,

    ??

    There are out of focus areas in the picture.

    They are not the result of developing errors.

    The problem began before the film was placed in the Combi-Plan tank.

    Probably film holder errors.

    heck i thought this was caused by one of those "new fangled" brass lenses I been hearin' about.

    You know the ones, believe thay are called a Pretzel or something like that

    Looks like the right-hand side of the film was out of the developer, so it wasn't seated well. Then along the top it looks like there is uneven agitation flow.

    I used a Yankee tank for a little while, and then I gave it up for using a tray or Jobo expert drum. I made my own sheet holder for a tray, and I've always had great results with it.

    Nice use of selective focus.

    Nice photo. Although it looks like a F1 car and not a Studebaker.
