EDF cockup has left me unsure if i should switch.

Following Martin's email, I decided I should have a look into this capping business.
I'm currently with EDF energy and was worried about the reported price increases of last week.

As E-On were the only capped rates left I was gonna go for them. Plus the Tesco points and energy monitor appealed too.

It was only by looking at old bills & letters, that I discovered that in 2006 I signed up for EDF's limited "fixed rate until July 2010" scheme. Now here's where it gets confusing.
In August 2007 I moved house and took EDF with me, but unknown to me until tonight the fixed rate scheme was changed back to the standard tarrif. I have of course been subject to price increases since I moved. So I got on the phone earlier to EDF who said they had made a mistake when i moved last year and will now correct it with a "weird bill". She could not confirm if I would be getting a refund for any credit I might have but did advise me not to switch to another provider.

I'm now not sure if I should switch to E-On's capped (until 2009) rate or stick with EDF's 2010 fix.
any ideas before it's too late?
