>Hey guys,

  For what its worth :
  Dont know if this will add any insight to the discussion or not... 
but.. I once-fire my porcelain. Im using Laguna frost ^ 6 and after 
it is dry , I clear glaze it with  commercial clear and then fire .
  Used to get tons of pinholing till I started misting the dry  ( 
unfired) clay pieces with water before glazing .. or wiping the face 
of them with a damp sponge .. If I dont do that , you can actually 
see the pinholes pop up  on the surface like clam holes in the sand 
,,,The only other time I get pinholes is if I dont apply the glaze 
heavily enough .
    I know you are discussing glazing over fired ware.. but didnt 
know if this might be an " aha!" thing  .
