I always had problems with the eccentric threaded adaptors used behind shower mixer taps, the same story you have to stop before they are fully tightened, old school was horse hair and Boss White (think its called that in English) but any nipping up of the joint or future removal/replacement of the mixer tap on the adaptors would always spring a leak which would be hidden behind the tiles and rot out the partition and plasterboard.
Come to think of it every one I did in the old days would leak to some extent, since using the Loctite equivalent no leaks at all and the joint remains solid.
