Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Anyone noticing the canonical issues on this DC?
Now all data from the "wrong" URLs are deleted. For my non-www-URL I see three result sets.
188.8.131.52 - 365 results (bad)
184.108.40.206 - 1 result (better)
220.127.116.11- 0 results (great)
All supplementals seem to be gone. Don't know if that has an influence on my regular serps. But it is nice to see Google cleaning up their results.
site:www.mysite.tld - 507 pages
site:www.mysite.tld/ - 507 pages
site:mysite.tld - 507 pages
site:mysite.tld/ - 507 pages
ALL return the same amount of pages with NO supplementals.
My default at present is 18.104.22.168 and is showing
site:www.mysite.tld - 285 pages
site:www.mysite.tld/ - 275 pages
site:mysite.tld - 337 pages
site:mysite.tld/ - 272 pages
The 2 above without the trailing slash have supplemental pages.
On both DCs my ranking search terms havent changed. Not all the extra pages are ranking well plus I notice a lot of the results on both DC's are using on page text in the snippet and not the meta descrption - all those pages using the on page text have an April 29th cache date.
Changing times by the look of it.

I assume that site:domain.com -inurl:www now returns zero results.
If it does, then your problems are fixed (in that DC at least).
Not sure what to try but i done both of these on 22.214.171.124 -
site:www.mysite.tld -inurl:mysite.tld returned no results
site:mysite.tld -inurl:www.mysite.tld returns 269 results, all supplemental.
g1smd can you tell me what that means? I haven't a clue.
Is there any consensus at this point whether G is getting rid of the old and removing the "supplemental" tag from the "good", or are they just removing supplementals, period..?
My hope is that G is trowing out the bad and keeping the good as non-supplemental? Actually, I my hope is that they just get rid of "supplemental" totally!

So, maybe you're best off if you put all of your pages at the first level -- that way you'd get all of your pages indexed. I've seen some sites where that's exactly what they do and they rank VERY WELL!
In the other DC's, that effect is dampened.
At least for the area I'm interested in.
The saying "One mans gargage is another mans treasure" is very true when it comes to DC watching.
