301 Redirects Not Taking

Although 301 redirects were put in place months ago, they are not working.

I have been wading through the extremely long threads looking over some of the Big Daddy problems. That's a lot of reading. :)

I am came out of a penalty recently due to a mistake with mod_rewrite and what appeared to be duplicate content (long explanation...not necessary for here). Since that time, I put in place proper 301 redirects to let Google know that I changed my URL structure.

Here's the problem, its been nearly 3 months and Google is STILL showing really old information. I have links from Digg, Slashdot, Del.icio.us, Blinklist, and literally thousands of other quality websites, but Google still refuses to index the 301's properly.

Is anyone else having a problem with 301's taking properly - and do you think my problem might be related to that old penalty?
