301-Redirects having different effects?

Hi, about 6 months ago, Slate Magazine has moved out of slate.msn.com
to slate.com, and did a 301-redirect on a page by page bases
(dynamically so anything you type under slate.msn.com would go to the
corresponding URL in slate.com).  Example: If you type in
slate.msn.com/asdf, it would 301-redirect to slate.com/asdf.

I am seeming slate.msn.com still taking priority over slate.com, even
with the 301 redirect after months.  Even new articles under slate.com
is showing up as slate.msn.com.  Example: If you Google "slate lacrosse
editor" (without quotes), the article that should show up for slate's
result is showing up under msn's domain.

Shouldn't 301-redirects have the effect of letting the search engines
know "This page/site is no longer here, go to the new site, give me the
rankings/link pop I currently have, and DROP THE OLD URL"?

Please help.

The Google indexes are all muddled up. It's going to be that way for a
while probably.
