I worked on my standings to get a level 4 research agent but it seems that the rewards are exactly the same as a level 3 agent. Somehow this doesn't seem quite right. Is it a bug or is this the way things work now since CCP decided to make eve appeal to the mentally challenged?

Are you sure you're looking at the same FIELD of research ?
Different fields have different RP gain multipliers (possible values 1, 2 or 3), but the datacore costs are also proportional (50, 100, 150 RP).
So, yes, it is completely possible (actually, highly likely) to have a L3 agent in a field like spaceship engineering giving more RP/day than a L4 agent in a field like mechanical engineering.
Also, your relevant science skill level matters too.

Were you already using the particular agent? If so, you need to 'talk' to them again for the RP to be updated.

Thanks for your help guys.
I worked out what it was. I have caldari ships to 5 with the level 3 agent and amarr ships to 4 with a level 4 agent. D'oh. Well at least the math is simple enough to work out now :)
