I definitely can relate to that feeling of being at your wit's end... we had similar problems when we first adopted Popcorn - although in her case she was just so terrified of being outside that she would be unable to perform. I remember MANY nights outside in the rain walking for HOURS until she finally calmed down enough to poop... the key with her was to just stay outside until she did, no matter how long it took (and no matter how frustrated we got - which certainly didn't help if she could sense we were getting angry). Catching her in the act and correcting her didn't really work, either, because even raising our voices to get her attention when she would go into the crouch would completely freak her out and then we would be back at square one. It slowly got better and the time outside before pooping got faster bit by bit until it stopped being an issue... hang in there!
