I have a sites, which was no. 2 for widgets and a PR5, now I have a PR6, not changing anything on the site and am on position 39.
It sounds like you are missing some anchor text. Go to www2.google.com and type in allinanchor:yoursearchquery
Then replace the 2 in www2.google with -in, hit return and you will see where you used to rank. You probably rank higher on -in (the old index) for your search phrase. GoogleGuy says this should come back to normal as things settle, at least for rfgdxm1 anyway:).
Hope this helps
