You did wash the adhesive off the wall? What kind of primer did you use? Does it look like air bubbles or is the primer changing physically like paint stripper does? Is it settling down at all as it dries? Is it by chance a plaster wall?

Did you thoroughly clean all the dust off after sanding? Sounds like Kilz2 over compound dust....please say it isn't so

Is this what it is looking like?

My concern is whether you still have wallpaper paste on the walls and that is contributing along with the loose drywall dust to the adhesion problem. You can put an alkyd primer over latex but that is not the solution here I fear.

You used latex primer, correct? Let it cure, then scrape/sand all remaining loose stuff and recoat with Zinsser Gardz.

So the wall was dirty before skim coating?
In that case just scrape & sand as stated
Then skim coat any areas needed again
