Is this a film of paint or something evil?

What do you think this white film covering everything might be?

The painter spray painted my popcorn ceiling white. Now I have a fine layer of white dust (paint?) over all kinds of surfaces, counters, built-in bookcase and baseboards etc. BUT it wipes up quite easily (which makes me think it might not be paint...) Is this what happens if plastic is not hung properly? (I found butcher's paper in the garbage instead of plastic.) Or is this something else?
If it's paint why is it dusty and easily wiped up? He said he didn't sand anything. On one (wood) wall I can see the outline of what appears to be the size of the butcher's paper.
Anyone ever make the mistake of not hanging enough plastic and can confirm this outcome?
I'm baffled. Is it possible that the popcorn ceiling compound went floating around or got sucked into the furnace?
Okay - I'm not just baffled -- I'm paranoid and freaked out. I can't stop thinking/worrying about it.
