What's happening to the plug? Is the coil disappearing or just breaking?

Typically it means your running too lean, regardless of plug.

A picture of a dead glow plug would be useful. What percentage of fuel are you running, and is smoke coming out the exhaust?

Are you taking temp readings? If so, that's an indication of an engine running too lean.
You also need to start it and just let it idle since the LSN might be too lean and the HSN fine. Too lean on the LSN is the first thing I'd check.
