I think Dataguy followed their lead and did the same for his pandalised UGM/UGC site. He's been posting recently that all gains were wiped out in latest iteration. The gist seems to be that the subdomain strategy messes up your site enough (not least because of all those new urls) for Panda score not to have any effect....but only until it's been substantially crawled and panda data rerun!
[Edit]There seems to be no shortcut to escaping Panda. Only root and branch changes appear to suffice [/Edit]
