I concur with Al1943 above. Check where the hole is. Sounds like though your familar with tires and flats thus it was probably on the tread side.
Thus Al1943's second statement about a faulty tube problem occuring within a batch out of the factory. I actually had that happen with two pairs of mail order Mich tubes I got for 1/2 the cost then the LBS in town...that's probably explains why they were 1/2 the cost! But these all started leaking on the tread side and it drove me nuts trying to find the problem. Finally I blew the tube up outside the tire and noticed a very, and I mean very, thin area about the size of dime (when blown up to about 2 inch in diameter) and that area opened up while I was pumping it.
