This is a perfect example of why one (the previous owners) shouldn't paint over wallpaper! Now, someone (lucky you) wants to remove it.
THe key to this job is being able to get the DIF (by Zinsser), or whatever you're using to 'soften' up the glue, BEHIND the paper. If you can perforate the paper (with a Paper Tiger), then you'll need to press hard enough and perforate quite a bit to be able to get the 'stuff' behind the painted paper. Peel what you can BUT be careful NOT to peel off the drywall paper!
This job is a mess. My best to ya and hope this helps.
