Murco 100 joint compound

Has anybody had an odor problem with Murco 100 joint compound? It's supposed to be for chemically sensitive people, which I am. We used it in a room 9 months ago and I STILL smell it. I can't use the room yet and am getting very frustrated. I called Murco and they said that the only thing that is released in the air is the water, but there is definitely an odor. I know it's not the paint because we painted another room and didn't use the Murco in there - no smell at all in that room.

The only smell I ever had with joint compound was if it was opened not all used then resealed and it soured. I don't see how this could be from the mud after nine months it has dried, cured, primed, and painted over.

What room did you paint?
What did you paint over, sheetrock, plaster?
What condition was it in when you painted?
Did you prime, and what did you prime it with?
What paint and how many coats?

I've only ever noticed odors in drywall compound if it got moldy in the bucket or if it froze and then thawed. I too have never heard of any VOC or chemical issues with regular joint compound.
