issue indexing xml sitemap in google webmaster tools

Quick question: I submitted 2 xml sitemaps into a clients Google Webmaster Profile 1.5 weeks ago. There are issues having the URLs indexed. Every week, I submit 1 or 2 new xml sitemaps into the same profile for this client. Never had any issues. I think it is a bug. Can anyone confirm having the same problems lately?

What exactly are the issues?

Edit: Just noticed the date. Are you still having these issues? If so, what are they?

I am having a similar problem. When I view (in Webmaster Tools) the keywords that Google is showing for my site, the list includes a lot of nonsense words that are only inside the simtemap/xml file I submitted to Google. For instance these phrases are shown as top keywords because they appear a lot of times in the xml file:

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds as if you're having the precise opposite problem to what the OP described.

What google sees, google indexes. No exceptions. They'd index your htaccess if they could.

<FilesMatch "\.(js|txt|xml)$">
Header set X-Robots-Tag "noindex"

Note also that the keywords list in WMT has no existence outside of wmt. If you've only just signed up for wmt, you'll see the list evolving as they add more pages. If you want really dramatic and horrible results, try posting a few ebooks whose word count is bigger than the rest of your site combined. So far there's no way to view keywords only for selected directories. Well, maybe there is, but I haven't found it.
