Getting more pages indexed by Bing

Bing seems to enjoy crawling my new site and while I keep on waiting for the site: command to start listing more pages, I still can't seem to get above a certain number.

Meanwhile, Google has finally fully indexed our new site and traffic is increasing at a very nice rate daily. I'm surprised by the user interaction numbers coming from Google search, but users coming over from B/Y! are very engaged and the bounce rates are surprisingly low.

Unfortunately, I'm only seeing around 5% of all pages in Bing/Y!.

The site already has several mentions across different forums, Facebook likes and I've even discovered 2 PR6 pages linking to the site!

The number of indexed pages on Bing has remained stagnant for around 2 months now, despite seeing their crawler active.

Any ideas on how to get more pages listed?

Addendum: I have a webmaster account with Bing and everything seems to be fine. Also, despite the increase in completely natural inbound links, index status remains stagnant.
