Well if it's as Eric F says -- and I think de-lamination is far, far
more likely to be true in most cases -- a careful application of a
tiny amount of solvent might fix it.

The tiniest bit of say lacquer thinner on a piece of wire might
wick into the gap, dissolve some neighboring glue, and mix/wick it back
towards the exit as it dries.

If it's de-lam, the "mold" spot just might move if you
press on it hard enough.
