Default Casein Gesso Question

Relative to my other post of the day (Wyeth and Casein Gesso), has anyone had longterm success painting egg tempera on casein gesso? How did the paint behave? I've asked some painters and conservators this question and am waiting to hear back, but in the meanwhile it would be interesting to hear from the Forum.

(By the way, I don't mean Sinopia's Casein Gesso, which contains oil - I've tried egg tempera on that and found the surface unfriendly to the paint; lots of slipping and lifting. I mean a traditional, 100% casein gesso).
