Crazy long snippet

Is it my site or Google went crazy?

Hi guys,

Really need your help because I'm going crazy (or maybe it's Google)
In the last few days, sometimes (changing with refresh to refresh) when doing "site:" search for my site (site:www.mysite.com) some of my pages shows a very long snippets (I'm talking about 7 rows!).
When taking a closer look I can see it's my original snippet, but x3 or even x5.

If anyone seen anything like this? Or you have any idea what is that mean?

Thank in advance,

It seems Google is always running some kind of test in the way their search results look -- measuring user response to new ideas. I first heard about this one just a little while ago, but haven't seen it so far.

I saw this for a search I was doing where I went through each of the first 1,000 results. Results 930 through 969 (approximately) looked like this.
