I saw a low crawl rate in December, but it seems to be back to normal now. I don't really pay attention to it.
Like barretire I have noticed a disconnection between crawling and actual indexing over the last couple of weeks.
It could be they are crawling for a different index from the one we are seeing, and not bothering to update the current one. Though from my own stats I'm not convinced I am seeing referrals from anyone using this new index either.
Perhaps they aren't updating either?
