[thelist] DNS record/ name server issue

I am having an issue with out of date name server information in the DNS record
for my domain.  I not-too-recently replaced two name servers, but the old
servers are showing up in addition to the new servers.  The change is over a
week old, so I do not think the issue is change propagation.  The information
with the registrar (catalog.com) is correct, but I occasionally get served the
old information by DNS.

Below is an example of a WHOIS response
(http://digitalspace.net/domain/whois.php) with the two new name servers in
addition to the two old.  However in other cases
(http://www.catalog.com/cc/cgi-bin/whois.cgi) the record includes only the
correct information.  (http://www.internic.net/whois.html also responds with
both old and new name servers.)

Any ideas?  Is this an issue with the registrar not updating the record
properly?  Or DNS servers not taking the updates?
