I had a problem cloning a PCR product like that. It turned out that my
recovery procedure for the fragment(geneclean)  made the sample
refractive to digestion with my enzymes. I switched isolation methods (to
beta-agarase) and never had any problems again. A question though--- you
are using a TA vector if the fragment was amplified with Taq right?
