AJAX Search URLs Again?

Today I found URLs of SERP different from usual. They were like this:

You can see the referrer string starting with "#" not "?". I can reproduce it on Firefox but can't on IE or Chrome.
It seems Google has begun the test again. Have they solved the problems?

I haven't seen any Ajax search results recently from the US. What country are you searching from?

The news has been Changes to Google referrer starting this week [webmasterworld.com], but those changes still use a conventional query string with a "?" and not a "#"

I'm located in Japan and can still see it.
When I look into a source code of SERP, it is definitely AJAX-based.

I know Google Blogscoped found SERP URL containing "#", too.
