Re: Swelling Drywall in Bathroom
Doesn't sound like the wall *swells* but rather what you are experiencing has to do with movement. In the winter the wood contracts when it's cold --- the summer it expands when it's warm. To add to the problem you may have the framing studs with the crowns running in different directions ( one in --- one out ) which causes a wavey wall.

Your correct in holding off putting up the tile backsplash otherwise it would be sure to crack.
It's really hard to say what to do --- really depends if your prepared to go through all the work of opening the wall to correct things --- or live with it.
