Shellac and urethane

What are the symptoms of shellac and polyurethane ....(minwax polys and their helmsman spar urethane)....not working together? I frequently use several coats of orange shellac on the bare wood, followed by several coats of polyurethane. On several of these pieces, I have noticed the varnish top coats peeling off in small areas on table tops, usually it takes years after I have finished the work for this to happen. Is this evidence of the 2 not working together or could it be something else. I usually put down 5 or 6 coats of urethane before i begin smoothing it out with the elbow grease. Could I be putting down too much varnish? A big thanx to you guys for your answer to my previous question on grass stuffing and knapp joints.
