I can explain that... It's not the same grip as on the 350D.

From Canon's white paper:

"To improve holding ease, a convenient new rubber slip guard for the thumb (back, top right) and a new grip shape in the back have been incorporated. The grip is also thicker by 1 mm."

So, it's bigger, and differently shaped. Good to hear that you indeed notice the improvement. I'm also still using the 300D. Have felt the 350D once (when buying the 17-55 IS) and didn't like it at all. (At least not when using big lenses on it). I'm curious to feel the 400D now.
