Dry guide coat is going to show the same thing in my opinion. The thing is often problems don't rear their ugly head until after the car is painted and gone. The thought of that filler soaking up the wax and grease remover gives me the hebejebees.

Brian...you are so right...why go looking or asking for potential problems...if your only priming once...and you ask for the panel not to be primed for a day or 2 after you use wax and grease remover on a panel, wouldn't it be more productive to spend more time blocking the panel or even priming twice?

Especially filler...it's basically a loose talc sponge that is designed to suck up anything wet (that's why you rarely see primer coming off of filler), 2 part putty does have a finer grind of talc as you mentioned earlier but it will suck up anything wet as well.

Spent the time and don't look for problems...there are enough problems that can bite you without tempting fate.
