MOSS Sharepoint 2007 Mylinks stopped populating for users

Just took over  a Sharepoint 2007 environment.  A little background, the My Links feature
where if a user is added as a member to a site the link is added to My Links in the top right was working.  We moved all the users to a new domain and I think that is when
it stopped working properly.  When we moved the user's to the new domain we ran this command on the MOSS server and in fact all the old My Links are listed for each user.

stsadm.exe -o migrateuser -oldlogin olddomain\username -newlogin new domain\user -
ignoresidhistory

When adding users to a site now the My Links is not updating. I've been looking around online for a while and have not been able to track down the cause.  One thing that is strange is on the DB server if I run the sql query from this artlicle it comes up with 20 records when I know there are many more than that:

I've looked at the profile import and that seems to be running fine from what I can tell.

Hi,

I think that your user import is not working as it should. If you get only that few records I assume that there are only old entries from the old domain in the user profile store.

Can you check that after migrating to a new domain, that the user profile import connection has been updated accordingly and that it is importing the new domain accounts?

I did change the import connection to point to the new domain controller and it shows the profiles of the new domain not the old in the list.

I am not sure what is going on but I managed to atleast get the My Links to update  now.  I created a temp group for the project and then removed the users from the default members group that is created automatically when a new project is created.   I moved users to the temp group and waited for the profile sync to occur.  I set the sync to occur every minute to speed this up  I then removed the users from the temp group and added back to the default members group and it updated the My Links.  I am still at a loss as to why  can't query the database and see them anywhere but I'm not going to worry about that for now.
