The problem lies in a set of key indicators which play out at varying levels and varying combinations in different niches, making it hard to predict what will and won't trigger a penalty - usually the -950 or end of results penalty, less often a penalty of NOT showing the index page but only subpages around positions 100 - 200, and less often still showing the index page around 500 - 600.
For the penalty in which subpages are showing around positions 100-200, are those subpages the pages that should be showing up for the keyword search or is the home page the one that is supposed to show?
Also, for this particular penalty, are there certain things that seem to cause it? Any particular areas to take a look at? I know that you mentioned the key indicators, but I am wondering if for this penalty, are there certain things that you think are more responsible for it?
