Interesting. While the problems in the photos appear to be due more to outright leaks/membrane failure, reading this made me glad that I used a vapor barrier primer when I painted my house (inside), meaning there is that much less moisture migration out of the house's shell. Wouldn't it be funny if my exterior paint held up better because of my choice of interior primer. I'll never know.
