I had the same issue. Not too big a deal since it's less than a dime sized white spot, but annoying.
The glue definitely seemed stronger than usual.
After seeing all these, I hatched a cunning plan for my map extraction. The glue becomes much more pliable when warm, so I basically wrapped it up in a blanket with me while I watched some TV.
After a couple of hours, the glue was much more yielding, but I still had to patienly work the map free. Realizing there were TWO globs also helped, since lifting it from the spine side out freed it from one glob. Patience and a bit of scratching got the other one. The map was freed without a blemish.
More enterprising individuals might try a hair dryer for faster results with a higher temperature.
