As for the alarm not going off and oversleeping a bit, don't be too harsh on yourself. I still oversleep occasionally after doing this for a couple of months, and it doesn't seem to affect anything. The next day it's straight back into the routine, without a problem.
Out of interest, what was your routine like when you were monophasic? How many hours were you getting, between what times and were you retiring/rising at set times each day?
In my case, I went from 7.5 -> 6 hours per day in the switch, and that time is gradually reducing automatically as the sleep cycles shorten. Currently the cycles are about 75-80 minutes.
