[Histonet] nuclear bubbling

Has anyone one had problems with nuclear bubbling?  I have read about
two different causes.  (1) Formalin itself is known to cause the issue
and (2) heating the tissue at a high temp (70 degrees C or above) while
drying.  The latter is definitely not happening, but I do use formalin.
I am in the process of changing the type of formalin that is used during
collection.  Does anyone have any other suggestions?  Has this problem
occurred for any other reason than I have already pointed out?  It seems
to be worse in the surgical needle biopsies than in the bone marrow
