I recall a very similar case reported in the forum a while, it appears to be a 'glitch' in the system that happens on rare occasions. If my memory serves me correctly, the poster contacted DreamHost and they fixed things up.
I suggest you contact them too, detailing exactly what happened. I am sure they will be able to tell you if the application went through correctly and fix things if it didn't.
