Sub-Domain Grouping on site:operator results

I'm not seeing groupings, but I am surprised to see other subdomains when I use the "www" in the site: operator - even the no-www urls get listed. Fortunately, using any other subdomain except "www" still seems to limit the results the way I expect.

Grouping might be the wrong terminology. But the site:www.domain.com is pulling all non-supplemental pages for any of my sub-domains.

Also if i do the subdomains individually, they display normally.

This behavior should be reverted shortly. I got word from Google it was unintentional.
