Has anyone else gotten bad ghosting from a B+W filter? 

Does anyone have a recommendation for a brand of filters that does not ghost?

What lens and are you using a CF on the lens?

I sometimes see a ghosting effect on longer exposures with my  43XL when I have the CF and a CLPL on.

Not sure of the conditions you're shooting in, but I have had satisfactory results with the Lee CPL.

+1 on Lee, they do scratch a bit easily however.

Also, you have to remember to place the Lee lettering to the outside when you use the filter or the effect becomes more of a warming filter. 

It's a been a few months since I used mine, and it may the lettering has to face you, but for sure if you get it wrong the filter becomes a interesting warming filter.

After thinking about it, his ghosting may be combination of using the polarizer and the CF.  I am going to have to test it on other lenses that do not need a CF.

Ghosting with CF is quite easy to get, especially if you stack additional filters on it... having a very clean filter, shade the lens as much as possible, and not have any bright glaring object in the frame helps. If you have some bright object far to the side that gets overexposed it's not too unlikely that you'll see a ghost of it.

Light coming in at a flat angle is more likely to ghost, therefore wide angles are considerably more sensitive to it. Grease/dirt on the filters also have a more deteriorating effect if the light comes in at a low angle.
