I don't know if it's a bad thing however. Google may be doing some testing.
The good news from what i can tell is that content is still being spidered and added to the new google database successfuly, the problem is retreiving that data for a user search. Ie it is the front end which has the problems not the back end. This could mean that once the problem is found and resolved it will be like turning a light on, instant.
