Are you feathering the edges out from the repair?

Are you sanding or better yet sponging the compound smmoth?

Are you priming the repaired area with a latex primer?

l do all the things that you asked in the reply. the last time when l had problems we had used a new product called "guardz". it is meant for sealing drywall. its an oil base sealer. not sure if this was the problem ? or maybe should have used another compound? never have l had so much problems with the compound shrinking back like that.
