CPVC glue questions -- should I be concerned?

Yesterday I glued some CPVC with Flowguard Gold 1-step primer/glue yesterday and forgot to stir or shake the glue first as directed by the instructions. The glue has been sitting for a few months but was not jelly-like, and looks pretty much the same now that it has been stirred after the fact. Is this any cause for concern?

Also, I haven't been able to find anything saying that pipes/fitting must be 100% dry before gluing -- I hope this is the case because it's kind of hard to have things perfectly dry when working on an existing pipes.

And on a related note, how long does a glue joint have to hold up before you can be pretty certain that it's a good joint? In other words, do they generally leak right away if they're going to leak, or do they sometimes hold for a day, week, month, year, etc. and then start to leak?
