Good Question: Removing Wallpaper Glue?

This question comes from our friend Kathy:

I'm removing 15-year old wallpaper in my kitchen. I've gotten it all down, but now I can't get the glue off the wall. I've tried straight vinegar and TSP, and have scrubbed the walls multiple times, but the glue isn't budging. I don't want to use anything too toxic, but I'm getting desperate. Any suggestions?

We consider ourselves lucky: We've never had to strip wallpaper. Has anyone else out there had a similar problem? How did you get the glue off?
