I'm seeing the problem as well, whatever I've had specified for years seems to have "flipped" to the opposite. What was set in GWT is no longer set. htaccess permanent 301 redirects that have been in place for years are being ignored.
As far as I'm concerned it looks very silly on Google's end, mine hasn't changed and so I'll waste no time on it.
