Inktomi and indexing question

anybody else seeing this?

I'm noticing that on many of my pages, Ink is indexing my head tag "description" as the content of my page... or at least it is listing it in the serps as such. Has anyone else seen this problem or is it just me?
I have no idea why this is happening in Ink. Every other SE seems to see the listings just fine and indexes them fine.

Inktomi normally displays your Meta Description in the SERPs. It isn't a problem, it is how they do things. Some other SEs do the same.

Ah...OK. I thought I was going crazy. I did some research and noticed that Ink was actually displaying the content of some other sites, but the meta description must be the same as the on-page content.
Thanks for the help.
