Fat over lean - not just for paintings

While refinishing a wood floor, I put masking tape around the room to keep the varnish off the wall.  Pulling off the tape caused this to occur everywhere.



Someone had painted latex paint (acrylic - lean) over some old oil-based (fat) paint, which is also notorious for this problem.
