Google's Site: Command Broken

Apparently "site:domain.com" is dratically underreporting results for several large sites, including SEW, and marking them as pages within the "Supplemental index" - when they are not.

While google is currently working on fixing the site: command, we're currently trying to figure out how widespread the problem is.

I am aware of at least one site in my niche industry that is experiencing the same problem. While most pages are showing supplemental using the "site:" command, the pages are still ranking for relevant search terms. This site, however, is not nearly as large as SEW. So, I'm not convinced it is specific to very large sites.

To clarify, the number of pages being displayed using the "site:" command is limited to 260, while there are actually far more, thousands of pages indexed

Google is realy acting weird..

I have found that google is dropping pages dramatically.. This is reflected in Traffic and site: reporting. Wish I knew what was going on. Pages are just being dropped , what were doing fine before.

Pages that have a high PR and have Good inbound links are being dropped.
Pages that do not have traffic and no inbound links are still in the search engine.
