First: Welcome to WebmasterWorld!
Second: I highly doubt your WMT info has anything to do with your lack of rankings, especially since you have a redirect in place. (I'd start double checking there and make sure the server headers are correct.) ... Beyond that, I'd start looking in other areas rather than paying any attention to what WMT says.
If your domains are not 'aligned' in your WMT account and it's concerning you as it seems to be, then you might want to put in a new 'change of address' from whatever they have it listed as right now to the old one, so instead of 'trying to withdraw' the old request, just put in a new change of address instead.
Either way, I'd definitely look at other areas, because if their algo is not overriding an obvious difference in domains, redirects, WMT info, then, in my opinion, they're missing something critical and much as people like to say 'Google's broken' these days, it's really not like them to 'just plain miss' things, so I might give a bit of thought to getting it correct, but if the domain you actually have the content on isn't ranking I'd definitely look at different areas, rapidly.
