Then again, maybe scrape off all the paint that will come off and use adhesive in the field beteen ceiling joists. Just pondering the situation here. Maybe Slick or one of the other more experienced can comment on the adhesive and plaster aspect.
FWIW: You can easily install 1/4" sheetrock using 2" drywall screws (no need for any furring strips). Tho, we prefer to use 3/8" S/R.
The key is locating the strapping or lathing. Honestly, we would install SR and tape an average bathroom ceiling smooth in about 3 - 4 hours = Complete.
It's really not difficult at all.
If we were the contractors on that job and ran into that issue, it would be time to do something like that, instead of continuing to play guessing games with the ceiling.

If the original poster continues to have trouble, I would also advise just going over it, or ripping it down and putting up a new ceiling...

joint compound used not dry

The problem here was that joint compound was applied between two coats of oil primer. First the cieling was coated with oil based primer. Then joint compound was put on top. This compound didn't have time to dry before the second coat of primer was applied over it the next day. The primer could not remain adhered to the damp joint compound, which had no way to beome completely dry between two layers of oil based primer.

Peellng bathroom paint

I noticed you originally repaired and repainted the bathroom with some exterior paint. I had the same problem several years ago when I had some good quality exterior paint left over and decided to use it on my bathroom. The whole thing started bubbling a few days later and then peeling off the walls. I had to peel all that exterior paint off the wall and some drywall came with it. So the wall then got a major spackle and sand job followed by primer and new interior paint. Problem solved, no more peeling. Big mess but you would never have been able to tell the walls were damaged. I will never use exterior paint on interior walls again. My favorite paint is Sherwin Williams Duration Home, nice satin finish, has anti-mildew stuff in it. Hides imperfections well and dries very smoothly with no lap marks. Expensive stuff but cleans up well for years and gives a fantastic professional finish. Won't use anything else. When you put so much of your own time and effort you want the finished product to look good. If your professional guy doesn't use good quality paint you won't get a nice end product. Good luck.
