Ironically it was the 301 that got me penalized in the first place.

I thought on the Google site it advised to use 301 redirects? Or is it that to move an entire site?
We used 301 redirects to move internal pages and we got penalised badly - though couldn't say 100% for sure it was because of the 301s

Google bringing back cached copies from the mirrors was probably a temporary roll-back.
Luke, your "penalty" was probably more a result of Google not passing link pop to your new pages via a 301. Once those "new" pages are thoroughly indexed and have some link pop of their own, they will probably rank well (assuming they are SEO'd akin to the original pages).

the pages only had a few links, so that wasn't the reason the main page came back.
It was a bigger risk to wait for Google to correct the 301 error rather than ditching less than 10 links.

we as well as a number of other WMs have experienced a small problem with the same type thing - all related to having many domains pointing at the same domain (stacked/aliased in 'nix)
With the splitting of the sites into many pieces we did the same thing with the remove tool and the 301s and some of us are coming back.
Went today to try to do the same thing for another friend, and the Google Removal Tool is gone - don't know what happened.
