A couple of things to try. Make sure the shoes are centralised after adjusting them and before putting the wheel back on. You can do that either by hitting the drum lightly with a hammer a couple of times or working the handbrake. When you wind the adjuster out. It only winds out one shoe. Therefor when you put the drum back on it rubs against one side which gives the effect of it slightly rubbing and wing adjusted when it may not be. Then When you then put the wheel back on and pull the handbrake up it then pushes out the other shoe. But only untill it just touches because you run out of pull on the handbrake. By the sounds of things you've tried everything and proberbly including this! But just incase you haven't
