This was characteristic of the Ilford papers, 
at least the Ilford glossy, when they were first 
introduced.  It had been commented on many times, and 
I noticed it myself.  Though I thought the problem had  
gone away at some point with a re-formulation of the 
Ilford papers.

If you're presently using "Photo" paper setting, try 
using "Inkjet BackLight Film" setting.  This has 
worked for me in several similar situations.
