Bug in Webmaster tools - Change in Address

There is a bug in "Change of Address" in Google webmaster tools. I guess this is the worst part of Google webmaster tools I ever seen in my experience. I redirected old site to new site using Google webmaster tools in "Change in Address". See the image below, a screen shot of change of address I did in Google webmaster tools.



And all the old pages were redirected to the new pages in the new site using 301 redirect. But Google is not good enough to handle the request. It is showing my new pages under old domain name. But Google search engine is messed up between those two sites, Old and new.

The old site: http://www.allfaithsfunerals.com.au/
The new site: http://www.selwynallenfunerals.com.au/

Google is showing the pages under new site as they belongs to old site.

For example, the page related to "planning-a-funeral"
New site: http://www.selwynallenfunerals.com.au/writing-a-eulogy
old site: http://www.allfaithsfunerals.com.au/eulogy.php

But Google showing a new link http://www.allfaithsfunerals.com.au/writing-a-eulogy, which is ever existing. So, I don't have any other chice, i redirected my non existing pages also to new pages.

Hope Google needs to improve its "Change of Address" in Webmaster tools.  Another strange thing is the Google showing each page twice on its SERP's for "site:selwynallenfunerals.com.au" (Selwyn allen funerals http://www.selwynallenfunerals.com.au). I discussed it in my last post (Repeating Google Search Results - Google Bug).
