Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
This isn't just for our site - I'm seeing it on other sites including high profile ones like the Onion and the British Library.
So: is this how it always is? - i.e. flaky? or is this just a temporary blip, and we happen to have signed up at the wrong time?
Seems fine to me though... very odd.
But unless it's fixed very soon - the code will have to come off.
Interesting that there's not more posts here...
I'd rather pay for a service than use another one of Google's perpetual betas, if that means they're going to screw things up in such an obvious-to-our-clients kind of way.
To me this smells very strongly of not enough testing.

Yes, I'm surprised.
Today I have to move it before </body> because there was big delay in dowanloading site. After it, everything is OK.
it is interesting, that Google change their sugeestion about best palce to put code. It seems they predicted problems.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are aware that many users
have experienced delays in their site due to a new update to the Google
this issue. We appreciate your patience in the meantime.
If the issue is not resolved for you by Monday, please feel free to
follow-up on this email, and I can give you an update on when a solution
will be in place
While I don't think GA is particularly good for commercial sites it is too bad that so many webmasters are having a hard time with it, because the product itself is quite nice. I have had it on my sites since day one with absolutely no problem.
