That says a lot. Mine is the opposite story. I moved a subdirectory from an old domain to a new one. The pages had many #1 positions while on the old domain. They have been on the new domain for six months now. I have added more links since the move than were there before the move and all the old links should follow the 301s.
I just gave up and put the most important set of pages on one of my older sites (same theme but a different angle) and whoooosh from #100+ to #1 on most of the pages moved.
