Not to turn this into a Ride-on thread, but after the above experience, I did some research and went with ultra-seal. Never had a bad experience since, and the only plugging I have done was of a nail spotted in the tire in the garage, I.e., no air loss. And, perfect balance, no weights.
Alas, I don't think I can use ultra-seal on my new bike with tire pressure monitoring, and there is something like a 2oz. slug of lead on the rim opposite the TPS.
