There is no evidence that the patch does not fix the vulnerability.  You
may be getting infected during the patching and cleaning process.  Best
bet is to patch, reboot, then clean. 

We've found that downloading both the appropriate patches and cleaning tools, 
and then disconnecting from the network (as in unplug your ethernet cord or
hang up your modem line) before you run them both - patch then clean - works
and prevents you from being re-infected during the process.
