This was shot with a Tokina 10-17 fisheye on a Canon 5D Mk II, so no filters. I think it must have been a dust issue.

I’ve seen these spots before and don’t believe they are spots on the mirror. What type camera did you use? Mirror spots will show up in the highlights on every panel. This picture has spots only near the window which indicates they were made by light reflecting off the lens onto the filter, back to the lens and back to the skylight filter. I have several very similar panos. The only cure with that particular lens is not to use a skylight filter, or to obtain a skylight filter with better coatings.
You can check you mirror by shooting a white board full frame. If there are spots, they will show up similar to the spots in your picture.
