Yes, but pages are becoming de-cached, and one or two pages have even
lost their PR.

I did mention it myself in here over a week ago AFAICR.
( and I don't use PHP - just static html )

It never use to be. - even after they "fixed" the canonical issues.
I also use LPC to check backlinks and it *never* used to show IBLs for
the non www addresses - now it does.

or they will have to rollback to when it was okay and have a rethink
on their algo's.
