I had a similar issue on the front with some Vesrah semi-metallic pads and I did a similar thing except I cut a very shallow X across the pads. Squeal went away and I still have the pads installed (though most of the X is now worn away).

Not sure why this worked other than guessing that it helped get some of the brake dust out from between the pad and rotor.
