Shellac is often used as a barrier coat
between incompatible finishes. Shellac
will probably cure over what you have
on the wood and from there another
finish can be put over the shellac. I’ve
never used anything but stain and poly
on floors but I haven’t had anything like
the problem you’re having.

That unpolymerized tung oil may be
your culprit. Some of those tung oil
finishes can take a long time to cure.
