I noticed this about three weeks ago. I decided to test the strangest string of letters (that mis-spelled a common word that was part of a phrase) that I could think of. The very next day it was not listed as registered through Whois but was labeled as reserved by my registrar. I tried to register it and I was not able, A few days after that it was able to be registered again with no problem.
