The paint was probably hot. I'm sure your working in the shade so I will assume that's a given. But the act of polishing heated the paint just like you say so spraying directly on the paint it probably dried quickly.
I don't know what that pilot paint was like but it could also be a function of the paint. That is less likely though.
Let me ask you- when you spray the paint did steam come off or did it visibly evaporate before you even put the pad back down? Try spraying a fine mist or 3 directly on the pad instead.
If it didn't dry immediately how many passes did you get before it dried? I'm assuming the way you describe that means it dusted as well? How much polish did you use? Did you work the machine on a slower level for the first 2-3 passes?
